ARTISTI > Liu Bolin

Liu Bolin (Shandong, 1973) has been called "the invisible man", having achieved international fame as the artist who has made camouflage his distinctive trait. Remaining motionless as a living sculpture, Bolin integrates his body with the context behind him –thanks to a careful body-painting– and finally makes himself photographed melted with the background.
