Slinkachu's solo show at Andipa Gallery
Managed to see this fabulous new solo show of miniature artist Slinkachu on the last day earlier this month. It has been two and a half years in the making since his debut solo show in Soho, summer 2008.

Slinkachu has once again applied his sense of humour to fabricate intriguing scenes in an urban background. The show features a good mix of street art he actually created outside the gallery (and then photographed as limited edition prints) and standalone installations produced without physical site context.
Although most of the installations are surreal at first sight (this is partly contributed by the use of brightly colour model human figures as subjects of the scene), there is some sort of irony and reality in each installation, which adult viewers would find it bitter while kids just love the toy-like nature of them.
