Guido Daniele is an Italian Illustrator than using the hands as canvases where to express their art. This artist has specialised in the technique of body art and body painting, and after take a look at their website, I’ve been with my mouth open as their “manimali”, as they are called, they are absolutely spectacular.
Guido Daniele was born in 1950 in Soverato, and lives in Milan. After taking a course in sculpture at the Academy of fine arts of Brera, studied for two years at the school of Tibetan Tankas in Dharamsala (India). From 1986 to date done scenery and trompe l’oeil of large dimensions for commercials, and television programs.
Since 1990, he decided to add to all your artistic background body painting technique painting the bodies of the models for advertising campaigns, fashion shows or events. His artistic research have led him to join two traditional techniques of the portrait: photography and painting oil on a photographic support – in the manner of Jan Saudek.
It was only from the year 2000 when it began to using the technique of body painting on your hands, giving life to their “manimali” you are getting a great interest by critics and fans at the international level.
Those responsible for the Italian firm of Toy Watch watches has due like so much as my, to illustrate its latest advertising campaign, have resorted to the good done by this artist so that, with a little paint and lots of imagination, draw manipinte with real or fictitious characters that serve support to be able to present new models from her collection autumn/winter 2013-2014.
In this way we can see the statue of liberty for your model in green tones, or Batman to watch black and white. Personally I find that more media impact has to be the of the Snake with the Apple of paradise in the mouth -suspiciously similar to Bvlgari Tubogas model – red clock, whose belt threads around the wrist.
The Visual advertising campaign for Toy Watch made me very much, but his reinterpretation of the Hound, the giraffe or elephant are big words, do not you think?
