China’s Invisible Artist – Liu Bolin

Liu Bolin | Paris-Beijing Photo Gallery

I’ve been a fan Chinese artist Liu Bolin for some time now. Every once in a while, I come across one of his images and they always bring a smile to my face. Take a look at the image above and you will see why. Liu paints himself, to blend in with the background he is standing in front of. The image above, is one of the best I have seen from him. You can find quite a few more here. It’s a really interesting concept.

This morning I received a newsletter from the Paris-Beijing Photo Gallery announcing a solo-exhibtion of Liu’s work which will run from today until the 12th March. If you are in town, you should definitely check out the exhibition.

  1. Liu Bolin has been doing his Hiding in the City series since 2005. It started as a political commentary on the tensions between the Chinese government and their people and the identity an environment gives an individual and vice versa. Liu Bolin will be exhibiting at Eli Klein Fine Art in New York from June 29 – August 28, 2011. Eli Klein Fine Art represents him exclusively in North and South America. More images can be found on
