Body Painting - The Invisible Man 2



The Invisible Man is back!
 
Chinese artist Liu Bolin has become world renowned for his camouflage art. Liu uses a team of two assistants to paint the camouflage onto him to make him invisible, and each photograph can take up to ten hours to set up. In some cases, Liu has his assistants paint his body and then he remains extremely still until an unsuspecting passer-by happens to walk past.

He has toured his work across the globe for the past five years, and is looking forward to a new exhibition at the Eli Klein Fine Art Gallery in New York in 2011

If you didn't see the part 1, check it out. Below are another pictures of his amazing camouflage artworks. ENJOY!

He says he sees his work as a statement on the world and its anonymous inhabitants. "My urban camouflage paint series began after Suojia Village Art Campus where I was working was shut down by the Chinese government," said the 38-year-old artist. "My resistance to the force of governments made me experience the life of people with no social status, no job, no family, no income and this was the emotional reason I began my series of works. My pieces talk about the question of the social status of art in general. In my work the artist is hiding to restore his strength and to protect himself."
