There’s a 37-year-old artist in China who can paint himself into anything.
Liu Bolin has been disguising himself to blend in urban or nature backdrops, creating the illusion of a human chameleon or a ghost.
He spends about 10 hours being painted for each work so he perfectly matches the background.
Bolin is currently in New York City for a new installment of his project ‘Hiding in the City,’ which previously included Beijing and Venice.
You can see a solo exhibition of Bolin’s work at the Eli Klein Fine Art Gallery in New York Jun 29 – Aug. 28, 2011. Or you can flip through a sneak preview of Bolin’s camouflage photos in New York and images from his previous protects. All photos are courtesy of Eli Klein Fine Art
