Liu Bolin and the Art of Concealment

Known as the ‘invisible man’, Chinese artist Liu Bolin camouflages himself against different locations, for his series Hiding in the City. His art serves as a protest to the actions of the Chinese government, who shut his studio down in 2005. The Chinese government had stipulated that it didn’t want artists gathering and working together. Each of his photographic artworks takes up to 10 hours to complete, with an assistant helping to paint him into the background.

  1. Ok Steve you’re making us other bloggers look bad. My bullet points and ramblings about what I had for dinner are no match for your high-tech stories with photos and ads. Stop making me look bad.
