While it is not hard to catch a snail and paint on it, there is some skill to getting detail onto their shells. All these works of art are totally real and done using non-toxic paint so it is harmless for the snails. And some are painted for a very good reason indeed…

You will soon discover that I have split these works of art in half, some from the very talented Slinkachu, and some from a “Save The Snails” fan group.

These from the hashtag “#savethesnails” are made by various people who want to try to save snails in their gardens and local parks from being eaten. Birds will often give these brightly coloured snails a very wide birth.

Meanwhile, artist Slinkachu had been paint various snails all over London and does it for some cool and unusual street art. At least they are slow-moving and will give time for everyone to see it.

Various artists and activists have hopped on board the “Save The Snail” movement which does lead to some very interesting designs.

Slinkachu is a 30-year-old street artist who’s based in London but is very well-known across Europe. These are big-name art snails!

It seems even some of the marketing nerd are jumping into the snail saving mood with some very slow-moving adverts.

The detail in Slinkachu’s work is incredible, just imagine how long it took to get this sort of detail on the back of a snail’s shell!

I really liked the way they give this snail a Zebra style shell. If I saw this I would leave it well alone, let alone a bird that is scared of getting poisoned!

If you liked the previous snail by Slinkachu check out this one that as a very jungle style theme to it. If he did this with tiny spray cans it would have been epic!

I have seen hundreds of these painted snails while making this post, but I think this just has to be the best. With a moulded fin, it looks amazing, and anything that would grow children’s interest in snails is OK by me.
