Quadrosnailia

Inspired by the city’s celebrated culture and status as a British holiday resort, Quadrosnailia references a Brighton classic. While admiring the snail sculpture’s shape for the first time, the artist was immediately reminded of its similarity to the iconic Vespa scooters used in the classic British film Quadrophenia, much of which was filmed in Brighton.

British artist Serena Sussex is well-known for her landscape and nature paintings, but wanted to create something unique for Snailspace that epitomised our city’s cool vibe. Look closely and you’ll notice the shape of the Snail’s shell fits the unmistakable RAF symbol introduced to MOD culture by The Who and featured in Quadrophenia.
