The Invisible Man

Liu Bolin

“He is making a statement about his place in society. He sees himself as an outsider and his artistic efforts are not always valued, especially in his native country.

He stands 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.

It means people walking by while he is carrying out his performances often have no idea he is nearby until he begins to move.”
