(Sm)Artist of the Day: Slinkachu

May 10, 2010

Chicken Tikka art

The Times ran an article about street artist Slinkachu, who creates tiny scenes that he photographs and then leave in place in nature to be washed away by rain, or maybe carried away by animals or stepped on by people who don’t even notice them.

In 2006, Slinkachu (that’s a made-up name he goes by) was in his late twenties, an art director for an advertising firm. He happened to notice a stag beetle on his porch in London and wondered whether there were lots of them around but we just never notice them. That led to the idea of tiny figures set up in a tableau. The rest is history. Now that’s (sm)art!

Check out his blog, and his main website. Cool!
