Call him the human chameleon.
Chinese artist Liu Bolin has an amazing “superpower:” the ability to blend into any surrounding, using incredibly detailed paint schemes.
His latest installation took him to Caracas, Venezuela, where he blended in with a comic book stand, and painted others onto life-sized versions of Bolivars, Venezuela’s currency; as well as a corn flour package.
“I went to the supermarket and realised how worried Venezuelans are with the problem of inflation. And so I wanted to express my idea through the currency, to reflect the relationship between money and people. The other work is corn flour. It is a product that is scarce in Venezuela and I saw that everyone wants to buy it. And that’s the idea I wanted to express in my work,” he said.
Below are images from several of his projects over the last few years.
