Creativity in Action – Liu Bolin, The Invisible Artist

Liu Bolin is a mixed media artist from Shandong Province in China. He uses paint to make himself invisible as an exploration of civilization and its development. He travels around the world and paints himself into real world scenes creating vignettes filled with social commentary .

The photograph below is part of his supermarket shoot which looks at the way that foods in the supermarket are harming the people of China.

Bolin is an incredible example of how we can use creativity to draw attention to those aspects of life that matter most to us, how we can use our art to better the world.

Watch his TED talk for Bolin’s explanation of his work, process and motivation.
