Local Amenities For Children


Finsbury Leisure Centre, East London


Lots of you have asked about a signed edition of the book. Well, I have finally got around to issuing a kinda 'Special Edition' of the Little People book - It is a signed, numbered edition which comes with the above image as a suitably small 14x10cm print, also signed and numbered. It is available now by clicking on the 'Stuff For Sale' button above, or here. If you live outside Europe and want it before Christmas, order ASAP! And, of course the normal edition is available through Amazon and other olde, non-virtual bookshops.


I also have an OFFICIAL website now, with the easy-to-remember address of www.slinkachu.com You can check it out to see some previously unseen (on the web at least) work and also pictures from past shows that I have contributed to, including some from my solo show in the summer. Thanks to my mate Alexis for putting it together (she is also, coincidentally, a little person herself.)

Same Old Song

Covent Garden area, London

I finally got around to judging the Treasure Hunt photography competition! The winning shot was taken by 'Apolobama'. And special mention should go to 'Weaselspoon' for good use of every uncle's favorite kids party trick. You can see all the installations and entries on the flickr page here.

Antscape Painting


Crystal Palace, London


I have finally got my sweaty little hands on the first copy of my book and it looks great! Seeing it for real for the first time was a buzz - I just can't wait to see it in the shops now!



The book is out on the 5th of September but we are having a book launch event on Sunday 31st August in London - The Little People Treasure hunt! I will be placing four installations at various locations around London and it is up to YOU to track them down and find them. The hunt starts at my show at Cosh Gallery on Berwick Street. The first person or team to spot all four installations and get to the finish line at the Truman Brewery Bar on Brick Lane will win a signed print from the show. There is also a special prize for the best photography of the installations, with a flickr page set up here for you to upload to, so bring your cameras! After the hunt, there will be music and drinks at the Truman Brewery Bar and the chance to buy the book a full 5 days before it arrives in shops (woopie!). And if that wasn't incentive enough to sign up, everyone that registers gets sent a free exclusive badge set featuring artwork from the book cover (while stocks last!) To see more details and sign up, click the link below (or above).


My first solo show, Ground Zero, will open on Thursday 28th August at Cosh Gallery. Further details will be anounced very soon...

Vandalised cash machine

The original, a year and a half ago.

A new customer, today.

I don't often check back on the little people once I have placed them on the street. If i do, i usually find that they have long gone. The cash machine installation however was intact the last time I saw it, a few months after it was placed. I checked again recently, but the little man was gone. The cash machine was still there though, although it looks a bit vandalised now. I decided to put a new little person down and see how long she lasts...

I will be taking part in a new show at Andipa gallery in South Kensington, London, starting from 25th June. It is called 'Trespass Alliance: Inside Urban Art' and features 'A selction of paintings, sculptures and installations by influential urban artists' such as Swoon, Faile, D*Face, Nick Georgiou and, er... me. Guess everyone makes mistakes... I've got two new pieces in the show and an installation that is, quite literally, rubbish. I will be posting images from the show in the week and you can check out more info here.

Rush Hour



I've started a sister-site to Little People called Inner City Snail, utilising the humble snail shell as a medium for 'art'. No snails were harmed, they just had their homes vandalised.

I am also excited to announce that a Little People book will be out soon, titled 'Little People in the City - The street art of Slinkachu'. It will be a chunky little hardcover packed full of my photographs from this site over the past two years, shots that have appeared in various magazines and exhibitions and also a lot of new unseen stuff. It will be published through Boxtree and will be out on the 5th of September at all good bookstores (and some rubbish ones). A pre-order page is up on amazon now, if you can't wait for the remainder bin. And its only £10! What are they thinking?! (No, seriously, what are they thinking?! I had dreams of a yacht...)
