Slinkachu, born 1979 in Devon, United Kingdom, has been “abandoning” his miniature people on the streets of cities around the world since 2006. His work that embodies elements of street art, sculpture, installation art, and photography, has been exhibited in galleries and museums globally. Now a familiar and much-loved fixture online too, Slinkachu is widely credited with rekindling the popular fascination with miniature art. He has almost 150,000 Instagram followers and over 90,000 Facebook followers. His images have been collected in three best-selling art books: Little People in the City (2009); Big Bad City (2010); and Global Model Village (2012), which collectively have sold over 300,000 copies worldwide. His large-format photography has been published by the Andipa Gallery, London, since 2008.
