The man who paints himself invisible




The photographs above show a man who skillfully paints himself so that he so closely resembles his surroundings that he appears to be virtually invisible. At first glance, these amazing images may appear to be the result of digital manipulation or photoshopped. However, the images are in fact real photographs depicting the work of clever Chinese artist Liu Bolin. The Beijing based artist has exhibited his work around the world with shows in China, Paris, the United States and elsewhere. Mr Bolin is a perfectionist who can take up to ten hours to ready himself for photographs of his performances. Mr Bolin generally uses assistants who help to paint him in readiness for performance.

And the last one below .....almost invisible...
