‘Invisible man’ artist hides in supermarket


Invisible man’ artist hides in supermarket

Yahoo! NewsBy Gaby Leslie | Yahoo! News – 5 hours ago


An artist best-known as the real-life invisible man has painted himself again for a new photograph collection – this time against a supermarket shelf.
Chinese-born Liu Bolin has mastered the art of camouflaging himself against a variety of backdrops and taking photos of the impressive results.
The talented 38-year-old has travelled far and wide disguising himself across many surroundings, including a London phone box, a pile of bricks, the Beijing Olympic stadium, a Venetian canal and a graffiti-covered wall.


A supermarket shelf may have been an odd choice of installation for the fine arts graduate, but he appears to blend naturally into the colourful stocked-up shelf of soda bottles and Pepsi cans.


The artwork entitled ‘Plasticizer’ was created to express his speechlessness at use of plasticizer in food additives.


According to the artist, each photograph can take months of planning and the actual paint job can take up to ten hours.
The new photographs are part of Bolin’s ‘Hiding in the City’ collection and are being exhibited at the Eli Klein Fine Art Gallery in NYC until 28 August.
