Chinese artist Liu Bolin has an amazing talent. He can blend into any surroundings he chooses, making himself, or his subjects, practically undetectable to the human eye.
Bolin, known to many as the “Human Chameleon”, decorates the body and clothes with colour, painting himself and his subjects into the surroundings, making them almost imperceptible at first glance. He sees his work as a type of political protest, and a way of hiding from the authorities.
In a recent work titled “Dongji (Winter Solstice)”, Bolin took a political stance on the environment, commenting on the air pollution crisis happening in China.
His work has been exhibited all over the world and can be seen in his book “Liu Bolin: The Invisible Man.”

Some of his pieces are more intricate. Here, he stands in front of the Hollywood sign in California.
Graffiti and street art play an important role in Bolin's work. Here he is in front of Queens' famous graffiti mecca, 5 Pointz, which has unfortunately since been knocked down.
Bolin is interested in the relationship between objects and the people who use them. For this shot, taken in the Colombia Gold Museum, Bolin 'wanted to express my idea through the currency, to reflect the relationship between money and people,' he told Reuters.
