Hanimals

These hand paintings from conceptual artist Mario Mariotti (1936-1997) are quirky and creative. His pieces have come to be known as Hanimals.

He is famous for his amazing hand paintings, and I particularly like the fact that, unlike other hand artists, his pieces include props such as the ball and ever-awesome stick-on eyes.

Implications - This is definitely a nifty alternative to traditional puppets, and I expect that seeing this quirky kind of hand painting will become more and more common in coming years. Forget about the face painting stations that you commonly see at birthday parties, festivals and carnivals -- this could be the future of body painting at social events!
