All I Need is a Bucket Full of Paint


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.

  • Jilly

    just perfect…..awesome

  • anon

    I still think this is my favorite
    but it may just be the distance away that the picture was taken. The Tractor is awesome too.

  • galloots

    yee its dece

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

  • Falon

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

  • Nathan Beam

    3rd!!!! tractor was the best.

  • Jacques

    How much effort did he put in this?

  • anonymous

    yea, he should work on his shoes more

  • Care Bear

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

  • Valerie

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

  • Rob

    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!

  • whoami

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

  • Mii


  • that was a good one ae

  • corholio

    i thought it was a ghost

  • Avery Lou

    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!

  • 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!

  • gennia11

    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!!! *****

  • tinkerer

    that was cool, but sort of obviouse =)

  • angel

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

  • Krysty


  • akki

    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)…

  • Mandy


  • Kathleen Herald

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

  • Menno

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

  • Ringadingding

    Most obvious one is the roadblock one

  • psb

    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!

  • he is pretty cool!

  • Kamil

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

  • mikayla



  • Jupiter

    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.

  • Mike

    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.

  • Cherub

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

  • One word. . .



  • Ena

    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!

  • Rhiannon

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

  • Isabel

    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

  • Goofy Goober

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

  • Goofy Goober


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

  • jamal

    its awesome :):>

  • Erick B. Coria

    The tractor was amazing!!!!!

  • That is just epic.

  • The tractor one is brilliant. Really good work there…

  • Brian Peralta

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

  • art girl

    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!!!!!!;)

  • Joan

    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.

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

  • ahhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! its a ghost!!! LOL.

  • kyle

    the first one was hard to see.

    • Meu-Chan

      totally true!

  • yeah

  • Someone

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

  • jorjeea

    I found it hard to see the first one :P

  • Fred

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

  • Darryl Huang

    it gets easier as it goes down :p

  • Wow, the first one is amazing!

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

  • gisele


  • nikki

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

  • ZombielandFan


  • mondaysmigss

    Only the first was difficult.

  • ZL123

    Saw him!

  • this is your bestfriend

    the first one was hectic and the rest were allright

  • Danni

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

  • mike

    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

  • TripleE

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

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

  • 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.

  • emily

    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.

  • Anonymous

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