Guido Daniele takes hand puppets to a whole new level. His painting skills are exquisite and very life like. To be honest some of these actually kinda creep me out but in a good way. Creepy is the new cool!
Guido Daniele is an artist who lives and works in Milan, Italy. He was born in Soverato. In 1972, he graduated from Brera School of Arts, majoring in sculpture and then attended the Tankas school in Dharamsalawent, India until 1974. He has worked as a hyper-realistic illustrator, co-operating with editing and advertising companies, innovating with airbrush and testing out various painting techniques.When Italian artist Guido Daniele was hired by an advertising agency to create body painting of animals, he loved the idea.
“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 hardest part of his job is watching his creations disappear down the drain after they’re photographed. “I’m getting used to it,” Daniele shrugs. “At least I get to start each day with a fresh canvas.” Guido was the 2007 Hero of the Year. An award given to him by the Animal Planet television network.
