I don´t know about you, but when I first heard of hand paintings, I thought of kids using their hands to spread paint over paper or canvas. That´s not what Italian artist Guido Daniele does, though. He brings wild animals to life by using nothing but hands, paint and plenty of time. Check out amazing photographs of these so-called “handimals”.
62-year old Guido Daniele graduated from Brera School of Arts in 1972 after having attended an artistic high school. The Italian airbrush artist spent two years in India and now works and lives in Milan. He not only paints back-stages of up to 400 square metres for artistic or advertisement purposes, but also creates trompe l´oeil, an art technique allowing for the optical illusion the depicted objects exist in three rather than the actual two dimensions. Since 1968 the Italian artist has been painting and participating in personal as well as group art exhibitions. Make sure to check out Guido Daniele´s website to learn more about the artist and his work. Even though Daniele is also into body painting, I would like to draw your attention to the artist´s brilliant hand paintings, which allow him to bring wild animals to life. Guido Daniele calls them “manimali” which translates into “handimals”. Here are my personal favorites – enjoy =)
