SLINKACHU

SOLO SHOW AT ANDIPA GALLERY

03.03.11-26.03.11

So i went to Slinkachu’s first solo show ‘Little People in the City' at COSH and loved it!

In August 08 the gallery was transformed into a city street full of tiny people. Slinkachu has taken street art to a new scale, painstakingly hand-painting tiny characters that live in a world that’s too small for us to always notice beneath our feet. His street installations are constructed in all sorts of public spaces, the portrayal of little lives that mirror our own. Working in miniature opens up the city landscapes in unexpected ways and this is explored in Ground Zero where he literally brings you down to a new level. Slinkachu has received international attention for his Little People Project and has participated in many group exhibitions both locally and internationally. The artist recently participated in the show entitled Tunnel 228, produced by Punchdrunk and Old Vic Artistic Director Kevin Spacey. In 2008 he released his first publication Little People in the City; The street art of Slinkachu, published by Boxtree (Pan MacMillan) with a foreword by author Will Self. The artist currently lives and works in London.

Ochre|with James Dwyer

I am really pleased to share my latest fashion work with you. I styled the incredibly beautiful Charlie on a shoot with my photographer friend James Dwyer. We worked from Andipa Gallery in Knightsbridge on a cold Sunday morning. The warm Scandinavian wooden flooring set the mood for me. It felt domestic and comfortable. The garments I chose for the shoot were of soft silk and viscose and were by Gat Rimon, Anthropologie, vintage Gossard and other vintage pieces. We used a vintage Jonelle fabric as a back drop for some of the shots. Charlie wore little make up, had gently tousled hair and perfectly moisturized skin - Beautifully natural. From the moment we started shooting, I knew where I would want to go with the art direction. I have loosely named the shoot Ochre and have been playing with some layout ideas for a potential printed series.  James and I have big plans this year with projects in the pipeline for the coming months. He’s a real gem, makes good coffee and enjoys a croissant, which is essential for a morning shoot with me!

Here are just a few shots from our shoot, Ochre.
