The Invisible Man
That’s what i call a perfect illusion. Chinese artist Liu Bolin can “disappear” in almost every environment, it seems like he’s diving into his environment and becomes a part of it. He is playing with his viewer who often doesn’t spot his art at first glance. But he is no chameleon. His very own painting technique called “Camouflage painting” and a few diligent assistants, who painstakingly paint his clothes, face, and hair are allowing him to almost vanish in his mindblowing illusions.
Liu Bolin started his first series “Hiding in the City” (in 2005)“ when the Artists’ Village of Beijing, Suo Jia Cun, in which he had been working, became a vicitim of Chinese state arbitrariness. The Chinese government closed the village, because they didn’t want artists to live and work together.
