Tinky - Victoria
An artist-in-residence at The Blender Studios in Melbourne, street artist – Tinky - works with miniature figurines and found objects, typically making use of gritty street landscapes where laneway fixtures, or missing bricks, become home to humorous dioramas. Miniature construction workers might gather to fix a broken egg shell; or a discarded fish-shaped soy-sauce container might become “the big catch” for a miniature fishing scene. Tinky’s unique worlds of miniature proportions each have a comedic undertone, with a relevant pun to give each scene humorous context. Tinky’s street installations exist simply to amuse and provide joyous moments to those that come across them.
