Guido Daniele: Hand and Body Artist

An enormously talented artist Guido Daniele is known for his "Handimals" art.
I'm usually not too much of an art lover, but when I heard about
and saw the talents of this man, I tried to find out as
much information on his work as I could.

Mr. Daniele started doing his Handimals collection when he was hired by an
advertising agency to do body paintings of animals. He would
research the animal to see how he could transfer its
features to a hand and bring it to life.

Mr. Daniele usually uses his daughter and son as his models/canvases.
It takes about 4 hours to paint something in its entirety.
He still has a hard time watching his paintings wash down the drain.
