Handimals: Mind Blowing Pictures of Animals Painted on Hands

Posted by Deepika singh on 22 Jul 2011 11:57 PM

Milan based artist Guido Daniele has been painting and participating in personal and group art exhibitions since 1968. Instantly his passion towards the body paint grew when he originally started The "Handimals" collection. Daniele was hired by an advertising agency to do some body paintings of animals called Handimals.
Daniele says, "I researched each animal in depth to see how I could transfer it to a hand, and then set about bringing it to life." The first "Handimal" was the cheetah, and to this day is still his favorite. "It turned out perfectly the first time and gave me the courage to complete the rest of the set." Each Handimal takes around three to four hours to paint therefore Daniele uses his son (Michael James, 15) and daughter (Ginevra, 22) as his primary canvases. "If you're spending hours on end holding someone's hand, I'd rather it be the hand of someone I love. There's nothing worse than working with a nervous, unfamiliar model whose hands are shaking."
However the first time Daniele painted the eagle with outstretched wings clocked in at ten hours upon completion. Daniele admits that the hardest part is not the painting itself, but rather having to watch his paintings be washed down the drain and disappear on a daily basis. "I'm getting used to it. At least I get to start each day with a fresh canvas."
