    Most of the pictures in this gallery feature Chinese artist Liu Bolin, dubbed “The Invisible Man”, who has mastered the art of incredible urban camouflage. Bolin camouflages himself perfectly into urban landscapes by painting his body to look like his background. It really makes me wish that I had some sort of chameleon super power. Just think of all the awesome conversations you could spy on if you could just make yourself look like a bookshelf or a minivan or something. Can you find the human(s) in each of the photos below?

    1. Liu Bolin has been doing his Hiding in the City series since 2005. It started as a political commentary on the tensions between the Chinese government and their people and the identity an environment gives an individual and vice versa. Liu Bolin will be exhibiting at Eli Klein Fine Art in New York from June 29 – August 28, 2011. Eli Klein Fine Art represents him exclusively in North and South America.
