Profile :Liu Bolin

I always like to see the work from Liu Bolin, he is producing "camoflague" photos of himself in different background using always some chinese element such as writing, urban landscapes of his country and so on.
Here a note about him:
Liu bolin is a young beijing based artist who has exhibited primarily in china until last year’s solo show at paris’ galerie bertin toublanc and a group show with the gallery in miami. he recently finished up a show at eli klein fine art in new york showcasing a variety of his pieces including some form the series ‘camoflague’. this series is an exploration of human nature and animal instincts which features chinese citizens painted to blend into their surroundings. the subjects are covered head to toe in paint, camouflaging themselves in front of the chinese flag, a billboard or downtown beijing.
