The Art Of Blending In!!!

I had this post sitting around in drafts, so I thought I’d just post it!!!

For several years now, Chinese artist Liu Bolin’s disappearing act has happened in plain sight……Initially, it was a reaction to the Chinese government shutting down his studio (“they want me to be invisible, I’ll be invisible”) as well as other, state-sanctioned repressive actions directed at his colleagues… As a result, Liu Bolin’s extraordinary works of public camouflage pictures are the most viewed on the internet…

The process of making oneself truly invisible is quite painstaking. Apparently, Bolin spends hours perfecting his poses to ensure that he’ll mesh with his background. Bolin then stands in front of backdrops with a team of assistants to paint the camouflage on his clothes.
