There's a Chinese artist who has mastered the art of camouflage. Much like animals in the wild, Liu Bolin can blend into any surrounding of his liking so skillfully that he or his subject becomes practically undetectable to the human eye. That's why many regard him as the "Human Chameleon." He uses various colored clothes and paints to cover his body and his subjects in such a manner that it is almost impossible to discern them from their surroundings at first glance.
Now, Bolin's creations are not just a piece of art but something which has a deeper meaning. The artist uses art as a political protest and sees it as a way to hide from the authorities, according to INSIDER. His work is not limited to one place but is known all around the world. If you haven't been able to attend his exhibition, you can definitely check out his work in his book Liu Bolin: The Invisible Man. We have also curated a list of some of his best works below, which is sure to baffle you. Treat it as a mind-boggling fun puzzle, because no one can get enough of those. Mind you, it may be quite tricky to spot him. Do your best!
