Uncovering the "Invisible Man"
Peek into one artist's process of disappearing
Liu Bolin is a Chinese performance artist and photographer who earned himself the nickname “Invisible Man” through his chameleon-like methods of immersing himself in various scenes. His series of camouflages, ‘Hiding in the City,’ is comprised of wildly impressive optical illusions, but it's so much more than that. Bolin uses his art to pass on a message, a silent protest aimed largely at China’s social politics, but also including global issues like pollution and poverty.
“It's my way to convey all the anxiety I feel for human beings,” Bolin told Art Net. Check out this gallery to see some of his incredible pieces, and the work behind the scenes.
