I have been following Slinkachu on Instagram for a few years and am absolutely fascinated with Stuart Pantoll’s work (otherwise known as Slinkachu). He is an artist and photographer who takes everyday objects/situations and places tiny clay people in them. The following is from his FAQ page:
The ‘Little People Project’ started in 2006. It involves the remodeling and painting of miniature model train set characters, which I then place, photograph and leave on the street. It is both a street art installation project and a photography project. The street-based side of my work plays with the notion of surprise and I aim to encourage city-dwellers to be more aware of their surroundings. The scenes I set up, more evident through the photography and the titles I give these scenes, aim to reflect the loneliness and melancholy of living in a big city, almost being lost and overwhelmed. But underneath this, there is always some humour. I want people to be able to empathise with the tiny people in my works.
Please take a moment and check out his work. I think it’s brilliant.
