As part of an urban art initiative launched in April of this year called Dubai Walls, there is an urban art exhibition around Dubai at the moment by UK based artist called Slinkachu. He is one of 16 artists taking part and his work is currently on display around Dubai. 

'... reflect the loneliness and melancholy of living in a big city'

'My work involves remodeling and painting of miniature model train set characters, which I then place and leave on the street. It is both sculpture, street art installation and photography... The scenes I set up, more evident through the photography and the titles I give these scenes, aim to reflect the loneliness and melancholy of living in a big city; the universal sense of being overlooked, lost and overwhelmed. But along side this there is always some humour'
