Canadian Moose painted on Hands


I am happy to share this amazing photo of art painted hands by an Italian artist Guido Daniele. The photo depicts a Canadian Moose and the green grass all painted on hands.

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. He has painted backcloths up to 400 square meters in size. He has also painted trompe l’oeil images for private houses and public buildings.

In 1990, he developed a body painting technique, and his work has been used in advertising images and commercials, as well as fashion events and exhibitions. There are a series of AT & T hand paint art commercials that was done by Guido now seen throughout the world.

For his depiction of animals, Guido was awarded the 2007 Hero of the Year by the Animal Planet television network.

  1. I have been fascinated by painting like this. does the hand model have to keep their hand in one place for hours and not move? Talk about cramps.

    Of course, this may just be people with too much time ‘on their hand.’ (pun intended!)

  2. Wow, that is really creative. Guido is amazing at creating realistic body paintings like this. I’ll be looking forward to seeing more of his work.

  3. Thanks for the post. I had trouble reading it in Chrome but was fine in IE. Don’t know if thats just me or some else. Anyway, thanks again.
