The Little People Art Show

“I started buying hard plastic train set figures and modifying them. I scrape away the details with a tiny knife, using a magnifying glass. I change them, too. One guy who was riding a bike, I turned him into a superhero about to fly off a building. I’ve used old zoo figures from the ’60s.”
“I really like the idea that you can be trundling to work one day and find some uncommissioned outdoor art, something on the floor or pasted on a wall. I prefer work that isn’t thrust in your face. There is a high chance that my installations may never be found. My scenes are made with tiny models and left hidden away on city streets, so they may be lost. But that’s what I like about them. I look at my installations as small slices of drama from everyday life. People are lonely and intimidated by big city life. Their world is full of dangerous things at 1: 87 scale“
