Liu Bolin - Hiding in Plain Sight

Liu BolinSeptember 20 - November 29, 2015

Can a person disappear in plain sight? That's the question Liu Bolin's remarkable work seems to ask. The Beijing-based artist is sometimes called "The Invisible Man" because in nearly all his art, Bolin is front and center - and completely unseen. Liu Bolin has become famous worldwide for painting his entire body to match the scenery behind - so when he is photographed it can be near-impossible to spot him. He aims to draw attention to social and political issues by dissolving into the background. All the images are created with a single photograph done in place without the use of photo shop.

This exhibition is presented in cooperation with Klein Sun Gallery in New York City.
