I wasn't able to dig up any background on the artist. Feel free to embellish if you have anything.

UGH! That is SO creepy!

The artist is Guido Daniele (site language is Italian)...

Here's an Animal Planet page about him (in English).

Oops, I just noticed that his homepage is bilingual, so ignore my warning about it being in Italian... lol

I thought the eagle was a little... cheesy, but the elephants and the giraffe were AMAZING.

Awesome post!

I've had a subset of these forwarded via email for years, now. Always wondered who was the artist.

Just sneaking back in to note that some of the body-painting art on the Guido Daniele website is NSFW.

Hey, I got some hand art for ya. Requires no paint, one finger, and is full of meaning. JUST KIDDING!!!!

Awesome! Amazing how a creative mind works. Good post.

Hah, pretty neat!

Really enjoyed that, thanks! He calls his images, "manimali", a play on "mani" in Italian meaning hands and "animali", meaning animals. But I also like the English double play of man and animal.

I like his work.

Hmmm... this gives new meaning to the term finger painting. Nice post.
