Slinkachu's Little People Street Art

When I first stumbled upon a picture of Slinkachu's tiny people I thought he was a photographer solely, creating scenes for the end purpose of the photo. It wasn't until I made my way to his website that I realized he's a street artist who uses photography to document his art.

Slinkachu creates tiny street scenes with hand painted miniatures and then leaves them in the streets of London to go on with their lives, be found by a child, eaten by a dog, who know's - it's their life to live.

Like with Joshua Allen Harris I love the notion of adding something fantastic to the world to be an enchanting discovery in a passer by's day.

Slinkachu's first book will be launched September 5th, you can pre-order here. And his first solo show at the Cosh Gallery in London opened last night.
