From Amusing Planet

Liu Bolin is a 35-year-old artist from Shandong, China, who has a special talent to blend himself into any surroundings by covering himself with paint. This human chameleon works on a single photo for up to 10 hours at a time, to make sure he gets it just right. Sometimes passers-by don’t even realize he is there until he moves.

"Some people call me the invisible man, but for me it's what is not seen in a picture which is really what tells the story," Mr Bolin says. "I experienced the dark side of society, without social relations, and had a feeling that no one cared about me, I felt myself unnecessary in this world. Mr Liu says his work is also a protest against the government, who shut down his art studio in 2005.
