Cultural Arts: Mesmerizing Photos Of The Human Chameleon Liu Bolin

China’s Liu Bolin has mastered the art of camouflage. He paints himself into the backgrounds of photos so that he almost completely disappears. Often called the “Human Chameleon,” Bolin began his foray into photography for political reasons in 2005, according to his book, “Liu Bolin Invisible Man.” The Chinese governments demolition of the Suo Jia Artist Village in Beijing inspired his most famous series, which shows him “hiding” in Beijing, New York, Venice, and other locations around the world. Each of his works, although varied, require 10-15 Hours of Painting
