Slinkachu

Little Big Men
Posted by Lina Kunimoto—07/2010

You never know what original trickster Slinkachu has got up his sleeve,
but chances are that it's microscopic in a big way. The London-based
artist uses the street as his stage, setting up teensy tiny figurines
and installations that cleverly interact with their real-size
environments: a surfer gliding on spilled milk, a pack of deer grazing
on discarded cigarette stubs. The results, snapped and uploaded onto the artist's website, are as entertaining as they are astute commentaries on the world around us.

Watch our Gestalten.tv podcast with the Beyond the Street: 100 Leading Figures in Urban Art contributor to find out just how he turns such little things into big ideas.

I am Dandy: The Return of the Elegant Gentleman featured on Slate.

The Craft and the Makers reviewed on L'Officiel Hommes. "Der Band bildet verschiedene Leidenschaften ab und zeigt: Handwerk hat nicht nur goldenen Boden. Es bekommt auch junge Impulse, die Tradition und Stil vor dem Vergessen bewahren."

Hello, I am Erik featured on Fluoro.

The Outsiders recommended on Parlor.

The Outsiders featured on GEO.de. "Zwischen Bildern, die Lust machen, die Stadt sofort zu verlassen, findet
der Betrachter immer wieder Interviews mit Menschen, die den Schritt in
die Wildnis bereits gewagt oder das Unterwegssein zu ihrem Leben
gemacht haben."

Our House in the City on Salon.

Elsa und die Nacht recommended on Die Bücherfresser. "Der wunderbar gelungene, poetische Text wird kongenial von surrealen, expressiven Bildern umrundet ... Ebenso wie  eine schöne Einschlaf-Geschichte ist dieses Buch eine zarte Geschichte über Verlust und Versöhnung."
