These don't come out easily, sometimes they can be pushed back into the wall and dissappear, this is often the case if the person installing it was thinking ahead and drilled the hole deeper than needed as an end-of-life plan. Else you need to drive the shaft back in a bit to release the wedge and then pull on the sleeve part, locking pliers are useful ...

These are wedge anchors and they're almost impossible to get out withoutY damaging the wall. Your best bet is to use a cutoff tool like a Dremel tool with a cutoff wheel. After removing the bolt portion you can grind away at the sleeve to recess it a bit more and then dab some white caulk around the hole to seal and cover it up. Good luck
