Liu Bolin the Invisible Man

25 March of 2011 by

Liu Bolin(born 1973 in Shandong, China) is a Chinese artist known for taking photographs of himself, painted in order to blend in with the background.

Look carefully. A little closer. This is a portrait of a man trying to blend beautifully into the background.

The artist is creating more than just startling images with his works.He claims they make a statement about his place in society. He sees himself as an outsider whose artistic efforts are not always valued, especially in his native country.
Standing silently in front of his chosen scene, in locations all around the world, the 36-year-old uses himself as a blank canvas.Then, with a little help from an assistant, he paints his body to merge as seamlessly as possible with what is behind him.
