Lui Bolin is a young Beijing based artist. I’ve posted a series of pictures from his ‘Camouflage’ collection, which features Chinese citizens painted to blend into their surroundings.
Camouflage can be enjoyed simply for the amazing technical accuracy Bolin has achieved. The effect is stunning – I was blown away when I first saw this collection.
Camouflage also presents an interesting social commentary. Bolin’s subjects have become one with their surroundings – it appears that individuality has been sacrificed in favour of the identity of the 'State'; Patriotism in its purest form. One World One Dream anyone?
