Dito Von Tease: Artist Makes Uncanny Fingerprint Portraits

October 10, 2012

"In Italian there is an expression: 'hide myself behind my finger,'" the artist known as Dito Von Tease tells Shine. "It's a metaphor to mean a not-very-effective hiding place." However, the 33-year-old native of Bologna turned this idea on its head when he created his "Ditology" series of portraits. Von Tease, who also goes by the name, "Il Dito" (The Finger) started the project three years ago, when he first subscribed to Facebook. He decided to create an avatar using his fingertip. He says, "I wanted to be free from my role, my oppressive relatives, and my not-very-friends." The burlesque performer Dita Von Teese, who he calls "an expert in disguises," inspired his alias. He also wanted to explore the idea that we all hide ourselves behind an image we create. "That's my finger: the changing masks everybody wears…especially famous people!" Which is your favorite?
