Guido Daniele Hand Art

I’m sure some of you have seen the original art by Guido Daniele at some point.

I remember seeing pictures of his work a while back but only found out his actual name when I decided to do this hand art series.

His art work is pretty much the kind that just takes your breath away!

Now I know I can’t do anything which will be even half the standard of his work but I would very much like to give it my best shot.

I guess I should tell you more about Guido Daniele?

He is a hyper-realist artist who was born in Soverato, Italy. in 1990 he developed the amazing body painting technique demonstrated above. It’s only right that I point you in the direction of his website : http://www.guidodaniele.com

I’m warning you now, hold onto your jaw before you go to his website, it will fall off!

If you go through his gallery you’ll see that my hand art above is a very poor version of his one, mind you I think my sisters rabbit would disagree. I tried to stroke it after I’d taken some pictures and the poor thing just froze!

I’m have a few ideas for animal designs of my own, but for the moment till I’ve practiced a bit more I’m going to stick to re-creating Guido’s.

So feel free to have a look through his gallery and leave me a comment down bellow on which one you would like me to re-create next, or suggest an animal which hasn’t been done for me to try :)

    OMG his work really is amazing! It would be interesting if you tried the iguana ones since it incorporates both hands ^_^ but seems like an elephant would be fun, since you could just work with the natural wrinkles in your own skin.

    @Sally Ooooh I’d never have thought of doing a turtle! :D And I don’t think that’s an animal that’s been done previously too! :D
