“What brings us together and what keeps us apart”

“All Star Nobody”

 

“Play Fighting”

You might find Slinkachu, an artist in his mid-thirties from London, crouched down on all fours on the pavement, and mistake him for someone that has keeled over in distress. In fact this once happened to him in the middle of one of his shoots when a fireman came rushing over to see if he was alright, only to find a man photographing miniatures. Slinkachu, who buys his tiny figures from a company that normally supplies model railway enthusiasts, abandons his work to the street after he has photographed them. Sometimes people notice the tiny art, sometimes it gets sweeped up by the street cleaners in a matter of minutes. Some of his scenes depict a heartwarming and scene and others are rather melancholy. “It’s the melancholy of life, especially city life,” says Slinkachu.
