Liu Bolin, The Invisible Man


Introducing Liu Bolin, the Beijing-based artist who is sometimes called ‘The Invisible Man’. Why is that so? Because in nearly all his artworks, his body is actually his canvas; painted and merged into an ideal background that becomes his photograph subject. Bolin’s works are so outstanding and surreal that you think they are done on photoshop!

Bolin is presented by Klein Sun Gallery and in this gallery, one can view all of his amazing works. We carefully handpicked some of our favourites from his remarkable works just for you below. Take a look at how each of these works were cleverly done:

Hiding in New York No.7

Hiding in New York No.5

Hiding in the City – Beijing Magazine

Hiding in the City No. 96 – Supermarket No. 3

In TED2013 Talk, Liu Bolin shared the concept behind each of his works including his first piece of work in 2005 where his art was used to express his objection on the demolition of Beijing International Art Camp.


Truly remarkable !
