LITTLE ART, BIG IDEAS

Art comes in many forms, paint on canvas, spray paint on walls, paste-ups, video, three-dimensional pieces, and sculptures, but since 2006 Slinkachu has been using remodeled and repainted miniature model train set characters to create an entirely new world.  Street art has come in many forms but the overall unifying thread is the same, question the world around and never be satisfied with a single answer.

The street-based side of my work plays with the notion of surprise and I aim to encourage city-dwellers to be more aware of their surroundings. The scenes I set up, more evident through the photography and the titles I give these scenes aim to reflect the loneliness and melancholy of living in a big city, almost being lost and overwhelmed. But underneath this, there is always some humor. I want people to be able to empathize with the tiny people in my works.

This Little People Project forces you to change your perspective as you are confronted with something unexpected. Whether it be post-modern art in a gallery, a mural on a four story high wall, or Slinkachu’s unique miniature worlds, this is the essence of art and it is always worth sharing.
