Every Tuesday, I share my interesting-fellow-favorite blogger’s details. They are blogging on various topics starting from poem to book to movie to fashion to photography to anything interesting.
Slinkachu – He is a British Street Artists. He started “The Little People” project in 2006. In an aim to encourage people to be more aware of their surroundings, he created mini installations using remodeled and painted miniature model train set characters. The characters are then placed on the streets in different situations that are captured in photographs. I am following him since 2009 and big fan of his art-work. He started with “The Little People“(more than 1 lac viewer) and now also working on “Inner City Snail” Project.
The ‘Little People Project’ started in 2006. It involves the remodelling and painting of miniature model train set characters, which I then place, photograph and leave on the street. It is both a street art installation project and a photography project. 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 humour. I want people to be able to empathise with the tiny people in my works. – Slinkachu
