Fool the Eye


This guy paints himself to blend into the background. Once again, I copied the photos and forgot to get full information about the artist. His name was Liu Bolin. The last photo in the series is not to be believed!

















Can you see him?

Wow! Shades of Alfred Hitchcock!

Jay Simser said...

Nope, Can't find him.

Gilly said...

Found him!! (Took a lot of looking though!)

What a strange artist. That one of the soldier "holding" him is really unsettling!

A friend had sent me this email too. I think the hardest to see is the one in the gap in the fence.

Pat said...

I think I saw his fee.t
Do you remember Hitchcock alwaya used to appear briefly in his films?

Arkansas Patti said...

Wow is he good. I found him but only after embiggen was used.

Granny Annie said...

I found him but had to enlarge the photo quite a bit. Those are really cool pictures.

Evil Twin's Wife said...

Very cool! I had to click to embiggen the last one to see him. :-)

A PhotoShop expert if I ever saw one.

Tabor said...

I enlarged the last and still had to study it a while before I found him. What an unusual talent.

rosemary said...

took me a while...his feet/shoes gave him away.

One Woman's Journey said...

I have never seen anything like this. Most I could find him.

gs batty said...

very interesting. the question is....
real or photo shop as Paul suggests. He really blends into the wheel, maybe a little to much.
the problem in today's world, "what is and What isn't?"
fun to look at either way.
PS - I'm still looking for "Waldo"

I couldn't see him in the last photo until I enlarged it; then he popped out.

It's really unique,but I wonder "Why?"

Grannymar said...

I saw him. I wonder what makes a guy do stuff like that?

LL Cool Joe said...

I found him too but I have to ask the same question as Darlene, why??

I'm an artist myself, but I can't quite see the point in his work, as clever as it is.

After a lot of searching I finally found him. Very interesting...he looks transparent.

karin said...

I've seen ones of these before but I can't remember where. I do remember suggesting that I paint a seat belt on Eliot. He won't wear one and some day he's going to get a ticket or worse.

joared said...

Didn't spot him at first glance but then found him.

Joy Des Jardins said...

Wow...he is amazing. I found him, but it took a while. He is definitely unique to say the least.
