  • “Quando sei bambino, hai sempre lo sguardo rivolto a terra, raccogli insetti e piccoli oggetti come se fossero grandi tesori.

    Nelle mie creazioni, ho cercato di riprodurre questa sensazione, la stessa di quando trovi un oggetto così piccolo ma così terribilmente prezioso e solamente tuo.

  • For an artist whose work frequently represents the themes of anonymity, alienation and loneliness inspired by city-living, it is perhaps appropriate that Slinkachu biographical details remain vague. Born in Devon in 1979, Slinkachu moved to London in 2002 where he pursued a career in commercial art and design.

    In 2006, Slinkachu embarked on the first of his street art installation campaigns: The Little People Project. His miniature figures are left to fend for themselves in the bustling city, where they are then photographed and left to the abandon of their urban environment. These figures embody the estrangement spurred by the over-whelming nature of the modern metropolis, and incite a renewed perspective of the everyday urban experience to those who find them.

    This sense of isolation and melancholy, however, is accompanied by sense of irony and humour that makes Slinkachu's commentary all the more poignant.
