After Putting Paint On His Hand, This Artist Does Something Incredible

Artists are constantly trying to find new ways to make their creative processes a bit more innovative. Art is an ever-changing craft, and if you want to remain relevant, you need to step outside of the box and try new things.

True to form, this artist has created something totally unique. As you watch his creations take shape, you’ll be truly amazed by his strategy.

Basically, he pants something on his hand and then presses it onto a canvas. This is not, however, your average finger painting.

This proves that there’s really no limit to artistic innovation. This looks a little too messy for me to try, but I can’t wait to see what he comes out with next!
