If I was asked to think of a single artist who has truly mastered his profession, I surely would’ve think of Liu Bolin. There’s no need to repeat everything that has already been said about this true genius, rather be sure to check #Liu Bolin tag for little bit of history in the making. This time Joey Tillman discovered a new piece by Liu, featured by The Telegraph. It seems Liu even beat himself this time. I can’t seem to realize how you do this kind of camouflage solely using your bare hands and bucket full of paint!? See for yourself!

  12. A Snail says:

    Shame about this one, I recognised the name Liu Bolin in the openin title, and knew exactly what to look for.

    He needs to put more work into his feet.

  13. NeeL says:

    Aargh!! Focking Ninja!!!!
    Couldn’t recognise him…

  14. vipul says:

    This is one of his best ones. The shoes are a giveaway, otherwise it is hard to detect.

  15. jelly says:

  16. Erica says:

  18. trevor says:

  19. Bryce says:

    Wow! That’s remarkable! If it hadn’t been for the shoes, it would have taken me a lot longer to see him. IMHO this is his best one.

  20. colin says:

  21. a person says:

  29. awesome!!! to the max! XO

  30. Peter Gorham says:

    I didn’t notice anything until I read Liu’s name in your introduction. This is truly well done.

  31. servilan42 says:

    This is so mind blowing! I just love this!!!

  38. UniLady says:

    Cool !

  39. Beck Ford says:

    wow! I was seriously wondering what was so fantastic about this one and wondering why Liu was not in the picture and then i saw a blurred line. This is, by far, his best yet. Thank you Vurdlak.

  40. Booker says:

    If it were not for the feet ……… incredible

  41. Care Bear says:

    Now that’s just downright weird.

  42. nockgeneer says:

    That’s way better than a lot of his other ones. Even blown up it’s hard to really see him. Or at least he’d be easy to miss!

  43. sabrina says:

    thats cool the only thing that kind gives him a way is the feet…. i like it =)

  44. Braedon James Poole says:

    that is so cool

  45. Firestorm says:

    That’s amazing! When I saw it smaller on my iGoolge page, I didn’t even realise what the illusion was until I saw the shoes! It’s beautiful how precise the work is. I love this :D

  46. t says:

    Now I know what I want to be for Hallowe’en!

  47. hitya says:

    this is great

  48. Barb says:

    I would like to see a sideways shot, too.

  49. ZL123 says:

    Kewl! I didn’t see him the first time I looked. :D

  50. Lol says:

    amazing, its nearly impossible to see the person if you didnt notice the shoes and the hands.

  51. Joshua Baggott says:

    Best Bolin yet, IMO!!!!

  52. Josh Dury says:

    best one yet

  53. Valerie says:

    Fantastic! Apart from the feet this is definitely one of his best. Brilliant.

  54. FCW says:

    How long does it take for him to paint that?

  55. David Blair says:

    This is probably the BEST Camouflage Optical Illustion I have ever seen. I am fairly new to this website and this is the first Illusion that I have seen by Liu Bolin. I’m sure there are more out there that can compete with this Optical Illusion but I don’t see how anything could top it!!! This guy is AMAZING!!!!!

  56. Veggies says:

    I asked myself a question when I saw that. How long did they take to paint it, and how they make it s AMAZING!Pretty much, no other Optical Illusion can beat this, only if they do the same thing but with more/different cans. Liu Bolin is an awesome camouflauge painter for what I can see.

  57. Oh my god,i can see a man in the pic,really really amazing!

  58. puniser says:

    i just loooove this guy’s work .Hes sooo perfect!

  59. kaikaikai says:

    pure genius

  60. Daniel says:

    at first i thought it was just crashed bottle/cans and then i looked properly,it was a guy caumoflaging!

  61. Liu Bolin has been doing his Hiding in the City series since 2005. It started as a political commentary on the tensions between the Chinese government and their people and the identity an environment gives an individual and vice versa. Liu Bolin will be exhibiting at Eli Klein Fine Art in New York from June 29 – August 28, 2011. Eli Klein Fine Art represents him exclusively in North and South America.

  63. Grace says:

    His socks give it away

  64. mmmm124 says:

  65. me123987645 says:

    this was in our newspaper (we can also buy the New York Times in Starbucks, but I’m talking about our local newspaper).

  66. connor says:

    I SEE YOU!

  67. inmyshoes says:

    Definitely one of his best!

  68. Nicool3000 says:
