The Real Life Invisible Man

Chinese artist Liu Bolin manages to camouflage himself in any surroundings, no matter how difficult they might be.


Liu works on a single photo for up to 10 hours at a time, to make sure he gets it just right, but he achieves the right effect: sometimes passers-by don’t even realize he is there until he moves.

The talented Liu Bolin says his art is a protest against the actions of the Government, who shut down his art studio in 2005 and persecutes artists. It’s about not fitting into modern society. Despite problems with Chinese authorities, Liu’s works are appreciated at an international level.

  1. The effort it must take, not only to find a good location but also to make sure he blends in.

    I like the telephone one, but the collapsed roof is my favourite.

  2. These are amazing pictures. What a great job this guy must do! Wild!

  3. Nice collection of pics. I liked your post very much. Thanks for sharing.

    Pretty wild art. I can’t help but wonder if he didn’t wait their and jump out to scare people.
