The Little People Project

Check it out! The Little People Project is taking the world by storm. Keep an eye out and you might discover them in a children’s park or trying to climb up an insurmountable obstacle, such as a side curb perhaps.

The Little People Project Overview

Here’s a project initiated in 2006, which through its’ originality, has benefited from highly deserved exposure on the internet and other media supports. Slinkachu, the artist behind it all, uses miniature model train set characters, a camera, some banana peels and a lot of originality to come up with some memorable, humorous and most times uneasy situations depicting the toughness of our environment associated to their scale. Here are a few of the artist’s words concerning his project :

“It involves the remodelling and painting of miniature model train set characters, which I then place, photograph 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.”

As said previously, there are countless exposures of this artist’s project throughout the web. I just wanted to, selfishly by the way, constitute a quick collection of some of my favorite ones and permanently commit them to memory through the writing of this post. Again, this is a completely selfish endeavor, and I’ll understand you not grasping the real necessity of this post but I hope you’re still able to enjoy the pretty pictures and ideas displayed below.

  • Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme
    of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get
    that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance.
    I must say you’ve done a excellent job with this. In addition, the blog loads
    extremely quick for me on Safari. Exceptional Blog!
