The following series features images from UK-based artist Slinkachu. The tiny installations consist of small painted train set characters which are positioned, photographed and left on the urban streets. His work plays with the sense of surprise, while reflecting the loneliness and melancholy of living in a big city. The images are from his recent publication ‘Global Model Village’ and installation work for War Child.
