I love Beijing based Artist Liu Bolin’s “Hiding in the City”  camouflage series, perhaps because they remind me of the performance art of the 80’s.  I think his work his fresh and innovative.  The series is an exploration of human nature and animal instincts which features Chinese citizens painted to blend into their surroundings, the subjects are covered head to toe in paint, camouflaging themselves in front of various venues.   Here are some of my favorites from the collection:
