Liu Bolin

A colleague sent me a link to works by Chinese artist Liu Bolin, the real life invisible man. Liu spends up to ten hours composing each photo, camouflaging himself in the scene so well that often passersby don't even know he's there until he moves - kind of a Where's Wally? for the art world.

You probably won't notice much from the thumbnails so click on a picture to see the full effect. View the gallery here. Very clever!

Hi there
I was tagged in a Stylish blogger award, which required me to tag 15 other bloggers and award them the same award. And request they join in the post. Here's my post. I picked you, as one of my bloggers
Kind regards Sandra

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
