Slinkachu's “Whatever Happened to the Men of Tomorrow”

Slinkachu's Whatever Happened to the Men of Tomorrow show at The Andipa Gallery in London:

Andipa Contemporary is pleased to announce the forthcoming exhibition Whatever Happened to the Men of Tomorrow? presenting new works by Slinkachu that continue to explore the artists trademark themes of loneliness and disillusionment engendered by the urban environment.

The exhibition originates from a series of one inch mini-installations created for the streets of London, left to be discovered by passers-by. These site specific interventions are captured through Slinkachhu's photogrpahs and brought insode the gallery environment as limited editions.

A series of supre-sized artworks will also be appearing at various billboard sites across the city throughout the exhibition. This project is a collaboration between Andipa and King Media to launch their new art sponsorship programme.

The exhibition features a series of works inspired by Alan Moore's 'Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?', which reveals the dramatic end to the Superman legend with the superhero living as a a simple, ordinary man. Slinkachu's characters find themselves over-weight, pale and balding, revealing a once heroic relationship to a city that has no interest for them anymore.
Little People in the City: The Street Art of Slinkachu is $10 at Amazon. Via.
