Camouflage art by Liu Bolin

Camouflage art by Chinese artist Liu Bolin. Liu uses a team of two assistants to paint the camouflage onto him to make him invisible, and each photograph can take up to ten hours to set up.

Found via here. Images from here.

P.s. I had this post sitting around in drafts, so I thought I’d just post it.

    It's alive!! This is incredible – a living trompe l'oeil. I love how the artist uses Chinese urban landscapes, architecture and themes. x

    Incredible! It seems like it'd be hard to match the exact shades of color, so props to him.

    Oh my, I am SO glad you shared this! It's incredible. I really had to look hard in the first couple of pictures to be able to spot him. I just can't imagine the time and work that goes into this… 10 hours, whew! That's a dedicated team of artists!
