Urban art with Slinkachu

Slinkachu is a UK based street artist and photographer whose goal is 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 emphasize with the tiny people in my works."

His photos are humorous but also possess humbling overtones of how seemingly insignificant actions can affect us on a larger scale.
