Can you see him?  Chinese artist Liu Bolin is a real life invisible man. Bolin manages to camouflage himself into any surroundings, no matter how difficult they might be.

Liu spends up to 10 hours working on a single photo, to make sure he gets it just right. But its worth it – often passers-by don’t even realize he is there until he moves. Bolin, who has garnered interaction critical acclaim in the art world, says these strange photos are a visual statement about not fitting into modern society and that they have a political message. He says they are a protest against the actions of the Chinese Government, who shut down his art studio in 2005 and continue to persecutes the country’s artists.

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