slinkachu: little people in the city.

UK street artist Slinkachu is a full-blown all-out genius, and his on-going outdoor mini-art series, “Little People“, is one of the best things that’s ever happened in the history of stuff. It’s that fucking cool.

Right now there’s almost more Slinkachu-based excitement than I can handle. There are times I curse the universe that I haven’t for some reason magically woken up living in London, and this is one of those times.

First off, in a world that loves to make a heavy coffee table art book out of subjects far less worthy, finally the stars have aligned and the first book documenting the “Little People” project, “Little People In The City“, is being released around the world on September 5.

Appropriately, the book itself is little enough to fit in your hand…

If you’re (lucky enough to live) in London, then Slinkachu is hosting a book launch and London-wide treasure hunt on August 31. The man himself will be placing 4 installations around the city, and the first person to find all four gets a signed print from Slinkachu’s first ever solo show, “Ground Zero“, opening TONIGHT at Cosh Gallery in London’s Soho. Even if you don’t win the print, just by singing up and being there you’ll have the chance to nab the book almost a week before everyone else, and that’s prize enough.

On top of all that, Slinkachu’s official site is currently offline promising a re-opening at the end of August (which could be to coincide with the opening of his solo show, the book launch in London, or the general book launch… sweet jebus, the possibilies…) and I can’t wait to see what the site resurfaces like.

So much Slinkachu in so little time. Not that you needed any further proof, but check out the levels of brilliance that “Little People” is evolving into with one of Slinkachu’s latest installations, “Life As We Know It”:
