Photographer / Artist Liu Bolin has recently released a new series of his camouflaged images entitled “Hiding In The City” and they are, as with all his work, expertly crafted and remarkably executed. For the unaware, Liu Bolin, has been meticulously melting into the backgrounds of his subjects for several years now and with each new series, his level of attention to detail and the degree of perceived difficulty only grows exponentially. With only an assistant and some paint, Liu’s works of art not only appear magical (like a thinking man’s “Where’s Waldo?”) but also speak to a deeper cause. His work not only attempts to trick the eye, but bring light to the fact that he and many other artists in China face persecution and discrimination for simply expressing themselves, and are forced to hide in the very country they call home.
