Liu Biolin: The Camouflaged Man

Posted by Charlie @ Discovering Mandarin Thursday, 23 July 2009
A Chinese artist named Liu Bolin has taken street art to hidden depths. After having his studio pulled down, he decided to take his personal sculptures to the people. When performing often people do not notice him until he moves and is about to leave.

He said the inspiration behind his work was a sense of not fitting in to modern society and as a silent protest against the Government's persecution of artists.

Liu says this type of work takes a long time to perfect and often will study photos and pose for 10 hours at a time to get each scene just right.

Bolin graduated from the Sculpture dept of Central Academy of Fine Arts in Shanghai.
