A few years ago I was drawn to a novel called The Restraint of Beasts, by Magnus Mills because of the cover art, a photograph of little model people building a fence. I recommended it last year (and would like to take a moment to re-recommend, as it was without a doubt one of the most compelling and best books I read last year). The other day I saw a link to Little People on designsponge and realized it was the same artist… or is it??
It seems that this artist was actually ripped off or the other way round, or maybe he even goes by different names. After lots of searching, I didn't come up with the answer, but his “tiny street project” is so impeccably done it awakens my childlike imagination while remaining relevant, thought provoking and evocative.
I'm surprised he hasn't gained much press here in the U.S. His site, which only displays a portion of his body of work (some of which are for sale as limited edition prints) has some interesting links to more street art projects.
