The Invisible Man

The Invisible Man

What seems to be an ordinary set of photos at a first glance, becomes a mind blowing work of art when you notice a man carefully hidden in them…

This amazing project is the result of collaboration between Liu Bolin, a Chinese artist and the French street artist known simply as JR. The two artists made a couple of photo series where Liu was covered in paint in a way that he mimicked the background, blending in so well it takes a couple of seconds to notice him in some pictures. The first camouflage series took place in Bolin’s hometown in China while the other series was made in the streets of New York. They were entitled Hiding in the City and Hiding in New York respectively, and are a part of Bolin’s solo exhibition in a Soho gallery.

The exhibit is called Lost in Art, and besides these two street art projects includes Bolin’s first sculptural composition named Chargers Series. By using cell phone chargers and melting them together, he created a flower-shaped statue named Peony, the first in the Chargers Series. Bolin’s piece of art is a comment on global consumerism and pollution, and the whole exhibition is focused on the criticism of the materialistic lifestyle.
