Liu Bolin

I have been looking at an abstract artist named Liu Bolin. I came across him whilst researching into a camouflage aspect to my D&AD LIDA Live brief. With his work he literally puts himself into the background, he does this using 'C-Printing' a method in which

I absolutely love his work and the way he can turn something such as a pile of bricks or collapsed building (see Pic 9) into a visual masterpiece.

the way that in some of his pieces he can be almost invisible to the naked eye excites me, visually tricking his audience his location is masked with an amazing mystery.

Not only are his pieces wonderful to the eye but extremely clever and unbelievably intricate. When i first saw this i was truly astounded, everyone I show has the same reaction. His art is both Enjoyable and exquisite.
