Meet the Real Life Invisible Man

35-year-old Liu Bolin, from Shandong, China, 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.

    To tanzil:

    Using a roller to cover a room in magnolia matt emulsion is “just painting”.

    If you want to describe this as “just painting” then fair enough, but by that measure, the Mona Lisa is “just painting”, so to The Last Supper, Sunflowers, etc.
