Camouflage Artist Liu Bolin…***EXCLUSIVE***
BEIJING, CHINA – UNDATED: Liu Bolin stands in front of a soft drinks shelf as part of his latest collection of urban camouflage art in Beijing, China.
With only his little feet at the bottom of a shelf of soft drinks giving away the trick of the eye, Chinese artist Liu Bolins newest camoflage art boggles the mind. Beijing resident, Liu has become so advanced at his art that he literally becomes invisible in front of a pile of coal, or blends seamlessly into a forest landscape. Most impressively though is his Dragon Series, which took him over three months to complete in Beijings Behei Park. Almost becoming part of the enormous dragon sculpture in the Chinese capitals famous park, Lius work is designed to show how we all can just disappear in todays mass production world. Taking up to ten hours to position himself in front of his backdrops, Liu, 38, uses a team of two assistants to paint the camouflage onto himself to create the invisible look to his art.
