Guido loves animals, trees, stones, mountains, oceans, clean water, hair, no war, no violence, respect for human rights. Guido is an idealist who hopes to do something positive in this world.

Guido Daniele was born in Soverato , Italy and now lives and works in Milan. He lived in India from 1972 to 1974 where he attended the Tankas school in Dharamsala. Since 1968 he has been painting and participating in individual and group art exhibitions. In 1972 he started working as hyper-realistic illustrator, in co-operation with major editing and advertising companies. He paints back-stages in different sizes (the biggest ones can be 400 square metres) for artistic and advertising pictures, TV commercials and tv programmes. He also creates trompe l'oeil, both in private houses and public buildings.
