5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing, 21 Sept. 2009
By 
This review is from: Little People in the City: The Street Art of Slinkachu (foreword by Will Self) (Hardcover)
This book intrigued me. With its brightly coloured photos of tiny life like models in the big bad world I was compelled to look at each picture and put it into a context that I could understand. I think this book is very much about what YOU want to see in it. For some it will be a book about miniature models; for another it will about how you perceive the world from a giant's perspective; for others it will a perplexing look into another person's mind and for me it's about the real world standing still so we can look at it from above.

The Street art of Slinkachu touched my "funny bone" so to speak. It intrigued me and so I purchased it. Even after looking at each photo in the book carefully I am still finding new things that I hadn't noticed before every time I pick it up. I love the irony, the satire, the sadness, the sorrow, the humour, the mystery, the boldness, the desperation, the cynicism of these photographed models that depict our own lives in miniature.

I am not an art buff, in fact "I like what I like" I don't have a passion for Picasso, I don't get him as one would say but I do love Lowry's depiction of the North of England and I have never forgotten the painting "Christina's World" by Andrew Wyeth which I saw in a New York Art Gallery many years ago so there is nothing "buff" about me.

But Slinkachu's street art is something I could become addicted too and I hope he continues to make his models and photograph them so that I can be intrigued some more.
