Can you spot a camouflaged persona in the first photo below? If you’re heaving trouble, don’t think less of yourself – after all, it is Liu Bolin we’re talking about here. Those of you who missed it, Liu is more known as an Invisible Man, which you can see in our archives if you follow the Liu Bolin tag. This artist has clearly mastered the body-paint camouflage technique, moreover it’s obvious he has taken it further, onto a next level. You can follow the underlined words in this text, and they will bring you to dozen of previous camouflage examples. Which one was the best? In my opinion The Tractor one beats them all! Stay tuned for more photos of Liu Bolin hiding himself…soon!

    The Tractor one was definitely the best, although it didn’t take long for me to see him once I saw his shoes, which don’t seem to be camouflaged very well.

  2. Jilly says:

    just perfect…..awesome

  3. anon says:

    I still think this is my favorite http://www.moillusions.com/2009/10/chinas-invisible-man-to-wow-paris.html/liu2
    but it may just be the distance away that the picture was taken. The Tractor is awesome too.

  4. galloots says:

    yee its dece

  5. The shoes were the give-away in the first and second. The others were fairly easy. Good illusions, all of them.

  6. Falon says:

    The first two took me a minute to realize where he was, but this is just phenomenal.

  7. Nathan Beam says:

    3rd!!!! tractor was the best.

  8. Jacques says:

    How much effort did he put in this?

  9. anonymous says:

    yea, he should work on his shoes more

  10. Care Bear says:

    From the looks of those folks, they should stay invisible.

  11. Valerie says:

    Yeah the tractor one is deffinately the best. Don’t like the last one. He is not camouflaged at all in that one.

  12. Rob says:

    They’re all amazing. He’s probably most “invisible” in front of the tractor, but the one in front of the wall is the best! He painted every single brick!

  13. whoami says:

    incredible!! I like all of them :-)
    He ‘appears’ most invisible next to the tractor though :-P

  14. katie says:

    that was a good one ae

  15. corholio says:

    i thought it was a ghost

  16. Avery Lou says:

    I agree that the tractor is the best. All the other ones were easy to find. I was completely at loss when I first saw the Tractor Picture. I was like,”What the heck are they talking about? There isn’t anything weird with this picture. Until I read the discription, I realized the answer. I love this!

  17. Peter Gorham says:

    I would never have noticed Liu in the Tractor image if you had not told me he was there! hat is his best camouflage yet!

  18. gennia11 says:

    lolz this is AWWESSSSOOOOOOMMMMMMMMEEE!!!!!!!!!!! so cool! i thought they looked invisible because they fit so well in to the background. a wonderful work of art! 5 ST/\RS!!! *****

  19. tinkerer says:

    that was cool, but sort of obviouse =)

  20. angel says:

    agree with tj, shoes give him away in every photo you can see them on him. first photo is best i think as well

  21. Krysty says:


  22. akki says:

    well the tractor one is real nice, coz it takes a moment to search him…
    but if other photographs were clicked keeping the person off centered and focusing on any other object, then other pics can also be improved (its just my way of thinking)…

  23. Mandy says:


  24. Kathleen Herald says:

    Yeah tractor was the best. The others were too easy. Pretty cool though!

  25. Menno says:

    I agree with T.J
    Really nice illusion, but it COULD be better :)

  26. Ringadingding says:

    Most obvious one is the roadblock one

  27. psb says:

    Ahhh, very good. Couldn’t see him in the front loader until I looked at the others to see who he was then the front loader was easy. Excellent!

  28. Kamil says:

    Awesome!! the first one was the best, and i did not spot it a first until i saw the second one.

  29. mikayla says:



  30. Jupiter says:

    I wouldn’t have known there was somebody in that picture if I wasn’t told. Very cool though I do like the brick wall one as well that one is also well done.

  31. Mike says:

    OMFG WOW It took me atleast looking at the pictures 10 times to notice the guy in front of the tractor. So yeah I’d say the tractor was the best.

  32. Cherub says:

    yeah as soon as i saw the shoes i saw it straight away the others weren’t so good :( but the tracktor was :)!

  33. Eeyore says:

    One word. . .



  34. Ena says:

    So cool. The one in front of the building was wonderfully painted. And how he knew to place himself in front of the camera is very impressive. Doesn’t the paint harm him? If his body absorbs some of the paint, he can get cancer!

  35. Rhiannon says:

    Wow – it took me a LONG time to see the bulldozer one, and the one after that.
    Great work!

  36. Isabel says:

    WOW! that’s sooooo kool :)
    i think all of them are good
    the brick wall and the tractor are probs the best tho (just what i think) :) lol
    who eva thought of this is soooo smart and the person who done the designing is sooo talented too.

    The only two pieces of advise i would give is that 1) the shoes give it away
    2) make something else the focus of the pic instead of the thing he’s camoflaging to.
    but still……. they’re brillient

  37. Goofy Goober says:

    First one was diffiult to see. They’re all pretty good though.

  39. Rolake says:

    the tractor one was sooooooooooooo cool. the others were soo easy.it was difficult for me to spot him at first but wen i took a look at the others it was glaring

  40. jamal says:

    its awesome :):>

  41. Erick B. Coria says:

    The tractor was amazing!!!!!

  42. Pei Wen Lin says:

    That is just epic.

  43. Sunny says:

    The tractor one is brilliant. Really good work there…

  44. Brian Peralta says:

    The buildozer was the best it took me like 5 minutes to find him

  45. art girl says:

    i really like the tractor one. it took me and my friend about 45secs to find the person and that is A LOT compared to the other ones. i LOVE camouflage!!!!!!;)

  46. Joan says:

    Most of the comments here are from stupid people.
    He isnt trying to hide at all, he intend to look as a ghost.
    For example, in this picture:
    he can paint his face all black, but he doesnt, to resemble a ghost.
    That is why he doesnt paint his shoes at all.

  47. Looks like a lot of work for something that will only work for a shot once. Strange stuff.

  48. ahhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! its a ghost!!! LOL.

  49. kyle says:

    the first one was hard to see.

  50. Someone says:

    It’s like you can see trough him xD Cammelion, much?

  51. jorjeea says:

    I found it hard to see the first one :P

  52. Fred says:

    He’s actually one of my favourite artists. Simply amazing.

  53. Darryl Huang says:

    it gets easier as it goes down :p

  54. Mia Bostic says:

    Wow, the first one is amazing!

  55. Polina says:

    I know this man! He’s in my ripley’s belive it or not enter if you dare book! the dudes awsome!

  56. gisele says:


  57. nikki says:

    lol the first one is easy i saw it and he’s by the wheel

  58. ZombielandFan says:


  59. mondaysmigss says:

    Only the first was difficult.

  60. ZL123 says:

    Saw him!

  61. this is your bestfriend says:

    the first one was hectic and the rest were allright

  62. Danni says:

    The first one took me 10 secs, the oters i saw straight away

  63. mike says:

    it was kinda easy spotting him did it in like maybe 5 secs in just a quick once-over that coming from a 15 year old yeah you probably should be embarrassed

  64. TripleE says:

    no offense but i saw him in 2 seconds in every phto, i trhought he was a pro not a clown.

  65. ... says:

    The shoes aren’t very good. Are they???

  66. artsy girl says:

    this is just my opinion: #1:the shoes arent very good at camoflauging #2:all of them are easy to spot him in exept no.1 . #3: he doesnt blend in very good in the 3rd,4th,and 5th images.

  67. emily says:

    only hard in the 1st one. he is by the large tractor’s first tire on the right. the rest of them have him in the center with very bad camo.

  68. Anonymous says:

    Liu Bolin is so easy to see in the pictures. He is so obvious. We need better illusions!

Speak Your Mind

You can add some images too.
