Miss Palmen, a 44-year-old Dutch artist, uses a method that requires a huge amount of effort and attention to detail.
The scenes are photographed and filmed and then put on display.
“People always react strongly when they see my work,” she said.
“They have mixed reactions: confusion, surprise and interest.”She added: “Mostly people like the idea of wearing garments that make them invisible.”
The match of colour, texture, light and hue is extraordinarily accurate but the artist remains modest.
“It’s never perfect,” she said. “But when it works that’s enough for me. I like the fact people can see it’s a real person in a suit and not a fake digital image.”
She regularly displays her works on the streets of Jerusalem, Rotterdam and Berlin
She got the idea for her unusual art from the increasing use of “Big Brother” surveillance.
She said: “I’d like people to consider what it means to let the government control our daily lives.
