Liu Bolin is a chinese artist, better known as “the invisible man”. He`s the best known by his series of work “Hiding in the city”. In this series Liu painted his body in a way to camouflage himself as to fit in various settings. Works emerged as a silent protest towards the government which, by his opinion, didn`t protect and support the artists in China. With his works he tried to pay people`s attention to different social problems. In series “Hiding in the city” he painted his body in front of some of communist slogans to which people have become adapted during time, and he tried to motivate those people to rethink about their attitudes and consequences which such slogans can have on people. In later works he moved one step further, by showing human helplesness before their environment. After painting himself in Beijing, Liu did the same in Venice and New York City.
Liu is a real example of a man who, with a little money, is CREAcTIVE!
