Liu Bolin is a creative artist who blend himself into scenes. He surprised the people with his art for the first time in 2007. He ans his two hardworking assistants blend his with the background with the use of color and pattern of the scene.
His story of becoming artist is interesting as his work is. Bolin started making him invisible he lost his job and status in society, When the Chinese government shut down his employment place, the Suojia Village Art Campus, and at the time his frustration led him to creativity.
My resistance to the force of governments made me experience the life of people with no social status, no job, no family, no income and this was the emotional reason I began my series of works, In my work, the artist is hiding to restore his strength and to protect himself. I want my viewers to experience China as I know it, where the concept of artists as human beings was once neglected.
