Little people trying to make a big impact
Gorky Park, Moscow
London-based street artist Slinkachu is making a big impression in the smallest of ways.
Though it would be easy to walk right by (or over) one of these tiny installations, the artist is seeks to provide a new perspective on urban living.
As he told Nelly Furtado in a Question and Answer article for Bettery Magazine:
Perhaps the city gives us the similarities that could allow us all to get to know each other – and not feel so lost and alone. Unfortunately I don’t think many of my little people have realised this yet. Like most of us, they are still wrapped up in their own small world. The city, for them is vast and unforgiving. Perhaps it is all a matter of perspective.
Could the trick to solving urban isolation be as simple as recognizing and working with the other little people?
The only way to find out is to try, but be sure to check out Slinkachu’s books chock full of little people at The Andipa Gallery.
