Tomorrow night (June 1st) in Los Angeles, Thinkspace will be opening a special exhibition from two street artists known to work on the miniature scale. Entitled Trash Talk, the joint exhibition will feature work from both Beligum’s Jaune and UK-based Slinkachu. Known for his clever sculptural interventions with his subjects interacting with everyday objects from a different “Honey I Shrunk The Kids” perspective, Slinkachu has made the transition to indoor work easily by presenting his work as tiny dioramas.

Each was placed in a padded gift box with a signed and numbered mock receipt. Take a look at some of these in situ on the streets as well as a few of the […]

Street artist and photographer Slinkachu recently was in Paris where he set up his Why is it so hard to find a job? series of work (construction worker, guard, saleswoman, scientist, and electrician) around town. These new street installations were created to promote ReAct Paris, “a conference organised by the European Parliament to tackle the problems of unemployment in Europe, particularly youth unemployment, which in some parts of Europe stand close to a miserable 30%.” Hidden in plain sight all around the City of Light, the miniatures play with […]

The London-based artist continues to hit up major metropolitan areas around the world (the theme of his last solo show) – this time in Gorky Park (Moscow, Russia). Looks like his tiny people sculptures should watch out for giants aka humans. Discuss Slinkachu here.
Last month, we gave you a heads up on Slinkachu’s new show opening on September 27th at the Andipa Gallery in London. Now, take a look as we have gathered more preview images for Global Model Village, an exhibition featuring the street miniaturist’s installations from cities all over the world.
