Making an Invisible Statement

Liu Bolin, a young Chinese artist, has found a unique way to protest the government's decision to close his art studio in 2005. He paints himself to blend into the scenery, like a chameleon. There is no trick photography involved, and he doesn't use photoshop. Instead, he spends about ten hours studying a picture and painting his body so that people don’t even realize he is there until he moves. The Telegraph online has a pretty good gallery showcasing his images, but you can easily find more thanks to Google.

This guy is good. Too bad his work is ephemeral.

Waldo was walking down the street and turned into a bar. Hundreds of people walked right past him not realizing that the bar was really Waldo.

The End.

This guy's impressive.. but sort of creepy and in some of the pics he looks like a ghost. I think if I got close to him he'd scare me! But then, I'm a chicken anyway 🙄
