Amazing Hand Painting Art by Guido Daniele

What you are about to see is not 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 3D paintings and illusion art. Born in Soverato, Daniele graduated from Brera School of Arts in 1972, majoring in sculpture and then attending 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 airbrushes, and testing out unique art techniques. He has painted movie backdrops 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 painting techniques to focus on body art, and his body paintings have been used in advertising images and commercials, as well as fashion events and exhibitions. Daniele’s inspiration for painting comes from his advocacy for wildlife conservation and he’s worked on awareness campaigns for many endangered animals around the world. [1]

Thanks to his various hand models, he can create animals of all different shapes and sizes. They’re a little like the shadow puppets we used to make as kids but on a whole other level. Interestingly, some animal patterns work better on certain people — for example, an elderly person’s hands were used to accurately replicate the wrinkles of an elephant.

I’d like to get a 2021 calendar of handicaps. Any idea? I have 2014, and have not seen any others. 🙏🏽
