Little People


Little People are my new favorite street art (Sorry Banksy and Moose, you've got to make room for the little guys).  They are tiny hand painted people placed around London and left to "fend for themselves".  They are placed in contextually relevant situations, like the guy getting into his car with shopping bags outside of a grocery store or the hikers climbing through a plant in KEW gardens, adding to the illusion that they live along side us.  Whereas most street art grabs your attention by being loud and controversial, these little guys are small and understated.  To me, this adds to the effectiveness of their message because you have to be paying attention to see them, making the audience more exclusive, deserving and appreciative of their effect.  (Found through Wooster Collective)
