Chinese artist Liu Bolin has made an art of becoming the invisible man.

Creating more than just startling images with his works, he has taken his art to a new different level by becoming a part of still, artistic elements found in public discourse such as public phone, museum decoration and graffiti wall. He lets himself blend within his chosen scene, allowing himself to become a blank canvas.



In other words, Liu Bolin exhibits his art recently by means of standing silently in front of his chosen scene, in locations all around the world.

He claims they make a statement about his place in society, he sees himself as an outsider whose artistic efforts are not always valued, especially in his native country.

Then, with a little help from an assistant, he paints his body to merge as seamlessly as possible with what is behind him.



It means people walking by while he is carrying out his performances often have no idea he is nearby until he begins to move.

Liu said he wanted to show how city surroundings affected people living in them.



He added that the inspiration behind his work was a sense of not fitting in to modern society and was a silent protest against the persecution of artists.
