Street artist known only as Slinkachu investigates the concept of miniature exploration. His most recent work is ‘The inner city Snail’ – sister project to ‘little people’. The unique project utilises the humble snail shell as a user intractable and versatile medium for ‘art’. The artful snail is deployed to various inner city locations with different forms of art installations.
Slinkachu was keen to establish that non-toxic paints were used, and “No snails were harmed – they just had their homes vandalised.” One was given a graffiti-style urban revamp inclusive of a new name – titled John. Another had the Tube logo painted on its shell complete with a couple of unexpected passengers.
Check out Slinkachu’s previous project – ‘Little People’, which featured tiny plastic figures going about their lives.
