“The Last Resort” is the first image from Slinkachu’s upcoming (March) exhibition at London’s Andipa Gallery. The exhibition, entitled Concrete Ocean, opens on March 3, 2011 and closes on April 2, 2011, and brings Little People to big ponds.
Andipa Contemporary is delighted to announce a new solo exhibition: Concrete Ocean, by renowned urban artist Slinkachu. Left floating in flimsy boats on puddles the size of lakes, or clinging onto seemingly giant paving stones, in danger of being trodden underfoot by the casual passer-by, the figures in Concrete Ocean address the artists trademark theme of loneliness and disillusionment engendered by the city environment. The dry wit of his observation and the deceptive sweetness of his scaled down figures make Slinkachu’s works absorbing, strong and engaging.
“The Last Resort” was installed and photographed in Wandsworth Common.
