Description

“They are Not Pets, Susan,” says a stern father who has just shot a bumblebee, its wings sparkling in the evening sunlight. A lone place of business worker, not up to an inch high, looks out over the river in his lunch break, “Dreaming of Packing it All In.” A tiny man makes his as far back as a tiny car, with a tiny shopping bag: “Shopping for one again.” Any other place of business worker sits atop a gigantic engagement ring and gazes into the distance; the caption reads, simply: “No.” These are the collected photographs of Slinkachu, a London-based artist who for several years has been placing tiny hand painted people on street corners, park benches, and the Underground, and leaving them to fend for themselves. Much like Banksy’s early graffiti work, Slinkachu’s creations mix the bustle, humor, and melancholy of city life, and lie quietly in the darker corners of London’s streets, waiting to be found out. And if you’re lucky enough to find one, to quote The Times: “Oddly enough, even whilst you know they’re just hand-painted figurines, you’ll be able to’t lend a hand but feel that their plights convey something of our own fears about being lost and vulnerable in a big, bad city.” This volume also includes a forward from acclaimed novelist Will Self.
