Blending In

Friday, March 2, 2012

Crikey, fancy meeting a real life invisible man? Beijing-based artist, Liu Bolin is able to blend into any surroundings by painting it on himself. His artistic expression is inspired by not fitting in to modern society and at times it takes him a whopping ten hours to work on one single photograph as he always wants to achieve the right effect. What a dedication. Aren't those photos brilliant? xo

P.S: Through a mother's eyes.
P.P.S: Rainbow village.

It's like a modern Where's Waldo!

Jess said...

wow! This is insane, but pretty cool! I don't know if I would want to see one in real life though. The pictures are just fine by me!!!!

Melissa Blake said...

I love this!! I wonder how long it takes him to get everything just right...

Diana Mieczan said...

I love that too, The Blonde Duck. True dedication, indeed!

Diana Mieczan said...

J, the 3rd photo is pretty tricky. He is standing in front of the huge wheel.

Jeanette, spot on!

These are so well executed! A lot of artists try this technique but very few make it work in an interesting way. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Diana said...

WOW!! In some of these it was difficult to even see him at all!! AMAZING!

This is crazy! I love this (unless I were to stumble upon him in real life, in which case I'd probably freak out a little!)

Christianna said...

These are the ultimate double take photos! So cool!

Jessica said...

These are amazing. I didn't notice him in the photos until the very end and then had to search in the first ones to find him. Absolutely incredible.

This is brilliant! In most of them I can't even tell where he is! Trully inspiring artist!
