(For a refresher-course: part 1 is here)
Let me present to you, sculptor Danie de Jaeger ( 1936-2003) who grew up in the African bushveld and created among others the incredible "Giraffe Family". Those giraffes are huge! By the way I do not know if this sculpture is still for sale but some of his work is...Should you need some Giraffes in your space...
Mario Mariotti (1936-1997) from Italy as his name suggests, painted also on his own hands, You can see him in action on Animains. One day he painted this intriguing and big-eyed Giraffe... I love how she looks! Half-posing half-perplexed. Not mentionning her lips! Sofi Giraffa only wishes she could compete!
Mario Mariotti was a conceptual artist (click on the link to enjoy even more of his art) who transformed hands into odd, fantastic creatures.
And last but not least for today's post, I will present to you Guido Daniele, another Italian artist who has developped a body painting technique... It is beautiful!
how calm she looks...
I wonder how many hours it requires and how much patience both the model and the artist need! I actually tried to hold my hand in that way and it is so painful to hold the fingers bent and the angle of the wrist..Try it! ^__^
