What you are about to see is not a wildlife photography! These animal drawings are called “Handimals” – stunning hand painting illusions.
Meet Guido Daniele (born 1950), an Italian artist who is behind this incredible collection of illusion art. Born in Soverato, Daniele graduated from Brera School of Arts in 1972, majoring in sculpture and then attended the Tankas school in Dharamsala, India until 1974.
Daniele has worked as a hyper-realistic illustrator, co-operating with editing and advertising companies, innovating with airbrush and testing out unique art techniques. He has painted backcloths up to 400 square meters in size. He has also painted trompe l’oeil optical illusions for private houses and public buildings. In 1990, he developed a body art technique, and his work has been used in advertising images and commercials, as well as fashion events and exhibitions.
