Little People In A Big World

I usually wouldn’t describe street art as “sweet” but there is something delicate, nostalgic, and endearing about street artist Slinkachu’s “Little People” project. Started in 2006, Slinkachu paints miniature model train set characters, which he stages and sets in city streets. The works are documented via photographs but Slinkachu views them more as site specific installations. The scenes reflect the loneliness and melancholy that his cast of characters feel from living in the city, where these tiny people are lost and overwhelmed in a world not built for them.
