Found on the Web

I found this Photographer / Performance artist, I thought was interesting on a number of levels. His work deals with identity, layers and visibility, and “fitting in” in a very crowded country.  I’ll show some of his work and provide some links, then discuss further:

Liu Bolin is a talented artist painter and photographer whose studio was shut down by the government.  His work is obvious a statement on this treatment, progress, and a metaphorical visualization of his place in Chinese cultural society.  The images are often errie disturbing and surprising.  We works with a team of assistants who paint him to melt into the background.  The image is then captured on a 4×5 field film camera.  Very interesting work.  What do you think?  let us know.

Here are some links:
