Some people are magic, and others are just the illusion of it.
― Beau Taplin
Calling Liu Bolon Master of Illusion is putting it lightly.
Using his own body as a canvas, painting himself into the background, Bolin creates scenes that are statements about our relationship to our surroundings.
Liu Bolin was born in 1973 in Shandong, China and studied sculpture at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, graduating with an MFA in 2001.
He discusses the social concerns of his home country through his artistic practice, most prominently through his ‘camouflage’ installations.
Blending in with the world around you is not as easy as it seems
But with the imagination and creativity of Liu Bolon, it becomes seamless.
