Liu Bolin

Chinese artist Liu Bolin originates from Shandong province where he was born in 1973. Graduating from one of China’s finest art colleges. he has become a prominent art figure. Despite his recognition he became homeless some years later, along with many other Chinese artists. Under the pretext of Olympic redevelopment the Chinese government demolished the buildings of Suojiacun artist village in northeastern Beijing. As a mark of protest, Bolin had himself painted to match the wreckage, camouflaging himself into the scene. Bolin continued the series, titled Hiding in the City, which has been praised by critics and has been exhibited world wide.
