Gallery: Guido Daniele Creates Amazing Depictions of Animals with Delic...

 

Italian artist Guido Daniele creates the most wonderful life-like depictions of animals simply by applying body paint to the hands of his models. A hyper-realist illustrator and trompe l’oeil artist, Daniele developed his own technique several a few years of experimentation with airbrush painting methods. Daniele’s extraordinary art was recently used in an animal conservation campaign by the World Wildlife Fund.

Initially trained as a sculptor, and currently based in Milan, Daniele spent some time in India and was most likely inspired Mehndi. His colorful life-like images have been used in advertising and commercials, as well as fashion events and exhibitions. With his hands painted and shaped into all manner of creatures, from  tigers and crocodiles to toucans, zebras and elephants, Daniele has a significant portfolio of his unusual art work. You can check out some more of Guido Daniele’s wild creations on his website.
