Review

~Praise for Slinkachu's GLOBAL MODEL VILLAGE~
“The artist Slinkachu’s Little People are now available on printed pages—miniature hand-painted figurines playing out everyday moments on a very small scale. Brilliant.”—The New York Times

 

“[These] tiny figurines are more fully us than any possible full-size models … I love Slinkachu’s works. I hope you will too.”—Will Self

[Slinkachu] is interested in…expressing the solitary, uncertain, anxious side of contemporary life—in a way that lets us share in some collective self-deprecating irony about it.”—The Atlantic

“There is something incredibly powerful about a tiny, carefully placed figure.”—Slate

 

“British-based Slinkachu is no average street artist. His works are often achingly beautiful, bitingly satirical, and are always very, very small.”—Huffington Post

I had received an email that showed a few scenes from the book, which I had forwarded on to friends. So when I saw that there was an actual book, I grabbed it. It made the perfect token gift for college-age young man (who are hard to buy for w/o spending a lot of money), although it would work for any age or gender.

Great addition to my growing collection of street art books. I'm not sure if Slikachu is the first street artist to do these minature installations out in the wild, but he's the first that I was introduced to in London. Looking forward to getting the other books.

If you've never seen Slinkachu's art, take advantage of amazon's "look inside" feature for Slinkachu's other book, Little People in the City." That's what I did and I bought both books. I got them to cheer myself up after surgery. They are very creative and fun.

Each scene is photographed close up and from a distance. The contrasts are fascinating and inspiring.
