35-year-old Liu Bolin, from Shandong, China, manages to camouflage himself in any surroundings, no matter how difficult they might be.
Liu works on a single photo for up to 10 hours at a time, to make sure he gets it just right, but he achieves the right effect: sometimes passers-by don’t even realize he is there until he moves.
The talented Liu Bolin says his art is a protest against the actions of the Government, who shut down his art studio in 2005 . It’s about not fitting into modern society. Despite problems with Chinese authorities, Liu’s works are appreciated at an international level.

The streets of Brazil can now continue to be more colorful and amusing for everyone, thanks to the two talented street artists. They are not the only one that are impressing people with their street art – these guys are only using spray painting and shadows to make unique street drawings.

He wanted to focus less on the heroes’ superpowers and psychic abilities, and more on their human fragility. As a result, Batman is positioned on his knees looking for answers while Superman is coming out of the wall injured and bloody.
