Slinkachu is a London based artist who creates very small street based installations of miniature model train set characters, which are placed on the street and photographed. These installations are then left on the spot for passerbys to discover. It is both a street art installation project and a photography project. The street based side of the work plays with the notion of surprise and according to Slikachu encourages 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.”
