Liu Bolin

Liu Bolin (1973- ) is a Chinese artist who earned a Bachelor and Master in Fine Arts. He is most known for his “Hiding in the City” series where he gets covered in paint to fade into the backdrop of the scene. By doing so he often subtly criticizes Chinese politics. For instance, he blended into his own soon to be demolished studio. By doing so, he indicated that he felt “invisible” as a Chinese citizen. His distinctive photographs have been shown at major contemporary photography festivals.
