The Art of Camouflage by Liu Bolin

Published 13 years ago

Meet Liu Bolin, the real-life Invisible Man from China, an artist with the ability to disappear in virtually any surroundings. It isn’t easy though – one single photo  can takes up to 10 hours to prepare. Liu uses himself as a blank canvas, and with some help from an assistant, he paints his body to merge as seamlessly as possible with what is behind him.

While his camouflage artworks are really mind blowing, he’s here with a message: “The situation for artists in China is very difficult and the forced removal of the artist’s studio is in fact my direct inspiration of this series of photographs, Hiding In The City…I am standing, but there is a silent protest, the protest against the environment for the survival, the protest against the state.”
