Croatian artist Lonac recently finished work on this trio of snails painted on a dilapidated building in his hometown of Zagreb. Titled “Xenophora,” the mural depicts three photorealistic carrier snails pinned to the edges of the old building creating a compelling contrast between old and new. The piece was created for the Rendezvous Festival and you can see more views and process shots on his website. (via StreetArtNews)
