Stefan Siverud is an artist hailing from Sweden who has decided to paint on an unusual canvas: the shells of living snails. What's more, Stefan Siverud paints pop culture imagery on them from fast food logos to video game characters. Dubbed Snailpimp, the series in an ongoing one that playfully juxtaposes nature with manmade products and services.

Although the meaning behind the series may allude some, Stefan Siverud leaves it open in order to let his audience connect with it in their own way. Perhaps there is something to be said about the fast-paced modern world and the slow pace of these snails. Or maybe Stefan Siverud wanted to hone in on consumerism in a unique way.
