Meet the somewhat disturbing art of Li Wei.

These pictures will get the heart pumping and your brain thinking on how the hell they do it… – weirdthings

This first one is my favorite, but the others are amazing and freaky, even when you know how it is done. This isn’t done with Adobe Photoshop or any other photo editing software.

Chinese artist Li Wei from Beijing started off his performance series ‘Mirroring’ and later on took off attention with his ‘Falls’ series which shows the artist with his head and chest embedded into the ground. His work is a mixture of performance art and photography that creates illusions of a sometimes dangerous reality. Li Wei states that these images are not computer montages and works with the help of props such as mirror, metal wires, scaffolding and acrobatics. – hemmy
