Artist Liu Bolin and his ability to deceptively frame the human form as a blank canvas atop a camouflaging cityscape is nothing new. However, rarely do we get a glimpse at the man behind the artwork, at least not until Crane.tv decided to link with the Chinese creative to advance its YouTube channel. A glimpse at the entire undertaking in creating one of his celebrated images, Bolin discusses The Invisible Man’s 2005 origins. After the Chinese government tore down this studio and the building it occupied, he decided to protest through artistic expression in which his body blended in with the background of his demolished haven.
