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.
