ART OF A DIFFERENT SORT


(Reworked from several old posts.)




What you are about to see is not a wildlife photography!
It’s called “Handimals” – stunning hand painting illusions.

Meet Guido Daniele (born 1950), an Italian artist who is behind this incredible collection of hand animals. Born in Soverato, Daniele graduated from Brera School of Arts in 1972, majoring in sculpture & then attended the Tankas school in Dharamsala, India until 1974.
Daniele has worked as a hyper-realistic illustrator, co-operating with editing & advertising companies, innovating with airbrush and testing out various painting techniques. He has painted backcloths up to 400 square meters in size. He has also painted trompe l’oeil images for private houses & public buildings. In 1990, he developed a body painting technique, and his work has been used in advertising images & commercials, as well as fashion events & exhibitions. Currently, Guido Daniele lives and works in Milan, Italy.

Here are some of what I consider his best:













Here are a few from an international AT&T

England--Stonehenge:


Russia--Buildings:


 Norway--Viking ship


Mexico--Chilies
