All kids have used their hands to create art. Whether you’re coloring with crayons, painting with a paintbrush or molding clay, your hands are usually an important tool in the creation of any type of art.
You may have even used your fingerprint or hand print to create a work of art in the past. But did you know that you can turn your hands into art? It’s true!
Hand art is a new and exciting art form that is like a combination of face painting and body painting. By painting your hands, you can create lifelike 3D works of priceless art that amaze and astound!
Probably the most famous hand artist is Guido Daniele from Milan, Italy. Although he majored in sculpture at Brera School of Arts, he began using a body painting technique to create unique hand paintings in 1990.
Since that time, his works of hand art have become more and more daring. When people first see his hand art, they can’t believe how simple hands can be turned into such realistic works of art.
