Guido Daniele is an Italian artist whose preferred canvas is human skin.He started working with bodily canvases over two decades ago and eventually started focusing on hands.

His series of “Handimals” features gorgeous tromp l’oeil images of wild creatures etched onto bent fingers and palms. It was featured in a highly praised AT&T campaign in 2008.

Each hand painting takes between two and 10 hours to produce, according to a 2008 article in The Daily Mail.

Daniele has been kind enough to share some of his “Handimals” with us, his complete portfolio of hand and body art are worth checking out on his website.
