Can you find Mr. Liu Bolin, “The Invisible Man?” Liu , a young Beijing-based artist, is called the “invisible man”man” owing to his incredible ability to transform his own body into a uniquely eerie camo art that blends into his surroundings. The36-year-old chameleon paints on himself and becomes one with the background. Now that’s an illusion.

“Some people call me the invisible man, but for me it’s what is notseen in a picture which is really what tells the story,” Mr Bolin toldthe London Telegraph. “I experienced the dark side of society, withoutsocial relations, and had a feeling that no one cared about me, I feltmyself unnecessary in this world.” Mr Liu says his work is also aprotest against the Chinese government, who shut down his studio in 2005. I guess they were able to find him (see below bottom). Can you?
