Liu Bolin: Urban Camouflage (Photo Series)

Currently based in Beijing, Liu Bolin was born in Shandong in 1973. He graduated from Shandong Art College in 1995 and later received an M.F.A. from the Central Academy of Fine Arts. His work has been widely exhibited in Europe, the U.S. and China. In his most recent series of photographs, called Urban Camouflage, he paints his subjects so that they blend into their surroundings, raising questions about how our environment defines who we are. Liu has written about his work: “In my photography, historical statues, costumes and architecture become symbols of that which confines us. I am expressing the desire to break through these structures. I portray subjects that seem to disappear into these structures and become transparent. The subject is released from social constructs and he is free.”
