Nightcrawler by Darick Robertson
For an artist whose work frequently represents the themes of anonymity, alienation and loneliness inspired by city-living, it is perhaps appropriate that Slinkachu biographical details remain vague. Born in Devon, Slinkachu currently lives and works in London. In 2006, Slinkachu embarked on the first of his street art installation campaigns: The Little People Project. His miniature figures are left to fend for themselves in the bustling city, where they are then photographed and left to the abandon of their urban environment. These figures embody the estrangement spurred by the over-whelming nature of the modern metropolis, and incite a renewed perspective of the everyday urban experience to those who find them. This sense of isolation and melancholy, however, is accompanied by sense of irony and humour that makes Slinkachu’s commentary all the more poignant. Slinkachu has received international attention for his Little People Project and has participated in many group exhibitions both locally and internationally. (src. Andipa Gallery)

Paintings by Shuichi Nakano which imagine a world where wildlife has one again assumed dominance over our industrialized society, grazing on and living among our cityscapes:
I’m real jealous of people who post screenshots of their autocorrect mistakes because it’s obvious they aren’t burdened by the need to nitpick at the composition of every message they send for at least 5 minutes.
I guess that this is my biggest work to date. It’s an A1 format ink in cardboard - a drawing that took almost half a year to complete. Also used watercolor, pencil and markers.
I call it “The Companion”. A story about two friends - a girl and her imaginary pet - who travelled for a long time, saw many beautiful places and met a lot of new people, creatures and animals who joined them as their journey continued. They arrived to something that resembles the edge of the world, and at first it might seem that their adventure has come to an end, but the girl is pointing at something high above that we cannot see, showing to her companion that there are more things to discover and enjoy together if only they wish to continue moving forward.
It’s a metaphor for the life experience and the luggage of our imagination. Everyone has a friend - the creature of mind - that follows them from the first day of their life, picking up experience, memories and emotions. We decide for ourselves what to load the vessel with, what the faithful creature of mind and memory will carry along with us to the edge of our existence.
Travel, see, feel, collect everything you find in your life - you never know what things you will want to have with you when the journey comes to an end.
