Chinese artist Liu Bolin is a master of disguise. He can camouflage himself into almost any surrounding, regardless of how difficult it might seem. But that’s not to say it’s easy. Liu painstakingly spends up to 10 continuous hours working on a single photo to achieve the desired effect, one of absolute perfection.
Mr. Bolin, who is both a sculptor and painter, goes through an incredible amount of paint and clothes to create each image.
Here he is at the ‘Bird’s Nest’ Olympic stadium in Beijing. He’d definitely win a gold medal in hide and seek.
Just another brick in the wall.
Disappearing, fun for the whole family!
I’ve lost my phone too many times to count, but this is the first time I’ve lost a person made of phones.
The white triangle is giving you away in this one Liu.
Ugh, he must hate people constantly stepping all over him.
You know what they say, you are what you…drink?
Good thing the construction workers are on their lunch break.
When in Rome, do as the Romans… but when in Venice, disappear completely.
The trees probably grow faster than all that body painting must take him.
You can’t escape the law, even if you’re invisible.
Liu found a way to stay after closing hours in the world famous Teatro alla Scala in Milan, to take in all of its beauty without those pesky tourists around.
What a genius, if no one can see him he can read all those magazines without paying.
I’m guessing Liu is a Dragon in the Chinese Zodiac.
Some of these are incredibly impressive, especially the ones with lots of texture like the text on the magazines in the newsstand one. He looks almost like a ghost in some of them.
