This Is Awesome

Meet Chinese artist Liu Bolin.

That is, if you can find him . . .

These photographs are from Bolin's "Camouflage" and "Hiding in the City" series. Bolin paints others or himself to blend into the scenery. His works are a protest against 'the state,' after the Chinese government forcibly closed his studio in 2005. Bolin's inspiration comes from a sense of not fitting in modern society, and simultaneously explores the animal instinct for survival in any given surroundings. Check them out.


I mean, come on! The man above was painted with the outline of the person behind him! That is just awesome.
