Liu Bolin - The Invisible Man

via glenwoodnyc

Liu Bolin brings a new, artistic definition to the word “camouflage”. He paints himself with the intention of blending into his surroundings. It's imperative that his body matches perfectly for the illusion to take place.

At first glance, he's hidden, but as you look closer, you can see him.
Talk about “Where’s Waldo?”!

He has been referred to as a ghost, a chameleon, or “The Invisible Man”. Imagine the intricate planning this takes! Perfection is his goal. Each masterpiece entails about 10 hours of painting.
Here are a few examples of his work. Get ready to be amazed!
