    Default Camouflage artist Liu Bolin - fascinating

    35-year-old Liu Bolin, from Shandong, China, manages to camouflage himself in any surroundings, no matter how difficult they might be.

    Liu works on a single photo for up to 10 hours at a time, to make sure he gets it just right, but he achieves the right effect: sometimes passers-by donít even realize he is there until he moves.

    The talented Liu Bolin says his art is a protest against the actions of the Government, who shut down his art studio in 2005 and persecutes artists. Itís about not fitting into modern society. Despite problems with Chinese authorities, Liuís works are appreciated at an international level.

    I saw him on the news. He has his assistants paint him.



    Can you find him in here?

    I saw how they do it. He gets himself into position and his assistants paint him. He probably does storyboards or something to get the photos he wants.

    Oh, he could make a photobook like that, I'd buy it!

    It took me awhile to find him in the pic with the tractor.
