Whatever happened to the men of tomorrow? Judging from the photos in the Slinkachu solo exhibition at Andipa Gallery, they got decrepitly old and shrunk to an exceptionally miniscule size. We’re talking pinkie nail size. Tiny. Borrowing a title from Alan Moore, London micro street artist Slinkachu’s new show explores his “trademark themes of loneliness and disillusionment engendered by the urban environment.” Known for his one inch mini-installations placed on London streets and left to be discovered by passers-by, Slinkachu has turned the camera on his works for this exhibition, allowing viewers to contemplate his poignant message without getting hit by a bus.
Londonist has been a Slinkachu fan for a long while. We’re really pleased see his gorgeously glossy giant photographs of his own “site-specific interventions” on show at such a spiffy gallery. Whatever Happened to the Men of Tomorrow opens today and runs until the 27th of June. So what are you doing still sitting there? Go.
Andipa Gallery is located at 162 Walton Street (SW3 2JL). Visit the gallery’s website for more information.
