Little people

Remember the post that I did about street art? Do you remember the photograph of  little people looking at a used cigarette? Well that is a very special street art and so I decided to do a post on it. The street art is called : Little people. Here is a short explanation form the artist :

“My ‘Little People Project’ started in 2006. It involves the remodelling and painting of miniature model train set characters, which I then place 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.” – Slinkachu http://slinkachu.com/bio
