Coba Anda perhatikan baik-baik, gambar yang ada di atas ini. Ini adalah potret seorang pria yang mencoba berbaur dengan latar belakang yang dipilihnya.

Liu Bolin (38), warga China yang lahir di Shandong ini adalah seniman yang memilih membuat dirinya menjadi seseorang yang samar terlihat.

Sulit untuk tidak mengagumi kecerdikannya. Liu melukis tubuhnya sebaik mungkin agar dia dapat "melebur" menjadi satu dengan latar belakang yang dia pilih dan menjadi samar terlihat.

Dengan sedikit bantuan dari para asistennya, Liu berhasil membuat orang-orang yang ada di sekitarnya tidak mengetahui bahwa dia ada di dekatnya sampai di mulai bergerak.

Gambar yang Anda lihat di halaman ini adalah karya terbaru Liu. Dia berbaur dengan barisan minuman dalam karya seni berjudul "Plasticizer", demikian lansir Telegraph, Senin .

Bukan tanpa maksud, seninya kali ini bermaksud mengungkapkan ketidakberdayaanya pada penggunaan aditif makanan, di studio di Distrik Seni 798 di Beijing, China.(rhs)

Hiding in the City No. 94- In the Woods, 2010

Came across this amazing guy the other day.
37-year-old artist Liu Bolin, from Shandong, China camouflages himself into the environment.

The talented Liu Bolin says his art is a protest against the actions of the Government, who shut down his art studio in 2005 and persecutes artists. It’s about not fitting into modern society. The government had stipulated that it didn't want artists gathering and working together. Despite these problems with the authorities, Liu’s works are appreciated internationally.
Liu said he wanted to show how city surroundings affected people living in them.
He added that the inspiration behind his work was a sense of not fitting in to modern society and was a silent protest against the persecution of artists.

In an interview with the Daily Mail he said: 'Some people call me the invisible man, but for me it's what is not seen in a picture which is really what tells the story.
'After graduating from school I couldn't find suitable work and I felt there was no place for me in society.
'I experienced the dark side of society, without social relations, and had a feeling that no one cared about me, I felt myself unnecessary in this world.
'From that time, my attitude turned from dependence into revolting against the system.'
Liu said he was further pushed on with his work when the Chinese authorities shut down his art studio in Beijing in 2005.
He said: 'At that time, contemporary art was in quick development in Beijing, but the government decided it did not want artists like us to gather and live together.
'Also many exhibitions were forced to close.
'The situation for artists in China is very difficult and the forced removal of the artist's studio is in fact my direct inspiration of this series of photographs, Hiding In The City.'

Liu begins by choosing the background location. Then he stands in position as the blank canvas for up to 10 hours as his helpers, armed with paintbrushes make him disappear into the surrounding landscape.
'There are many people who like my work I think because my work has a quiet strength, in the photographs.
'I am standing, but there is a silent protest, the protest against the environment for the survival, the protest against the state.
'I wanted to photograph the reality of scenes of China's development today.
'My work is a kind of reminder, to remind people what the community we live in really looks like, and what kind of problems exist.'







Katanya dia melakukan seni ini sbg bentuk protes thd pemerintah Cina yg menutup studio seninya pd thn 2005 n menganiaya para seniman.





Meski begitu, karya2nya mendapat apresiasi dari dunia internasional. Utk menghasilkan karya yg sempurna, Liu selalu mengerjakannya dlm waktu lebih dari 10 jam.
