Liu Bolin’s Camouflage Art

Liu Bolin is a Chinese artist whose trademark is photographs featuring himself, painted to blend into his surroundings. I rather like the one shown above.

According to Wikipedia, “Liu belongs to the generation that came of age in the early 1990s, when China emerged from the rubble of the Cultural Revolution and was beginning to enjoy rapid economic growth and relative political stability.” His work is a protest against the censorship practices of the Chinese government, which persecutes artists (surprise, surprise) and who shut down his own studio in 2005.
