Design of the Day – Little People Project

Street Artist Slinkachu was born in Devon in 1979 and moved to the hustle and bustle of London in 2002 to pursue a career in commercial art and design. Then in 2006, the anonymous artist embarked on the first installment of his street art collection, the “Little People Project” in 2006, which has attracted attention worldwide.

Slinkachou uses miniature figurines of people and abandons them in various satirical situations on the streets of London, based around themes of anonymity, alienation and loneliness inspired by city-living. You can choose from a number of this artists though provoking imagery in the form of a poster, badge or model from The Andipa Gallery in London.

Design of the Day – when Design and Street Art meet

Designer and co-founder of design studio Yellow Diva, David Whalley collaborated with Australian street artist Phibs to create this funky vinyl chair which was exhibited at the 2008 Fringe Furniture Festival in Melbourne, Australia.

Whalley based the design on the human body and Phibs graffiti represents Polynesian tattoo’s that was achieved with automotive spray die that soaked into the vinyl upholstery.My eye is instantly attracted to the colourful swirls which bring the chair and the smooth curves which look incredibly comfortable.

I also love the fact that is you look at the piece from the side it resembles a fish shape – not sure if that’s on purpose though!
