Come in close
Because the more you think you see
The easier it will be to fool you.
J. Daniel Atlas, Now You See Me, 2013
Guido Daniele is an Italian multimedia artist and body painter. He has worked in many different media and has also worked for two years in India, where he attended the Tankas School in Dharamsala.
He produced a sequence of animals painted on the human hand, which he calls ‘handimals’.
The work is so intimate, so impeccable, it’s hard to believe it’s painting at all.
Guido Daniele was born in Soverato (CZ – Italy) in 1950 and now lives and works in Milan.
The beauty of Art is Illusion. What you see vs. what the artist sees.
And because you are on different sides of the canvas, you see different angles of the Illusion.
So look closely. But not too closely.
For the magic is in the Illusion of the Art.
