In their current show "Trash Talk" at Thinkspace Projects, interventionists Jaune and Slinkachu offer new solo pieces and collaborative works. Jaune, last mentioned on here, is known for his tiny, stenciled sanitation workers that toy with scale and humor throughout city streets. Slinkachu (last featured here) uses everyday objects as vessels for his own small characters in unexpected dioramas. This show runs through June 22 at the space.
The “street interventions” of Belgium-based stencil artist Jaune put sanitation workers in strange, often humorous situations on walls across the world, using the contours and features of each site for inspiration. For many, the stencil work recalls the public work of practitioners like Banksy and Blew le Rat. His specific usage of sanitation workers, however, comes from personal experience.
