The London gallery BAFA Contemporary presents, Liu Bolin: Vanishing Point, the artist’s first solo exhibition in the UK.
Showcasing previously unseen photographic works, Vanishing Point explores Bolin’s signature method of using complicated and precise hand-painted camouflage to blend into painted backdrops, whilst continuing to raise questions about visibility, concealment, consumerism and the environment.
Liu Bolin was born in 1973 in Shadong, China and studied at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing. Emerging with a number of prominent artists reacting against China’s Cultural Revolution, Bolin’s work, like many of his contemporaries, engaged with the social concerns and struggles in his country.
