For me this Sunflower is the most beautiful illusion works that Liu Bolin has created under the category of Hiding in the City. I love the lovely concept and at the first quick look, the body painted model is not perceptible. The viewer will need to further gaze on the picture in order to notice the hidden body painted model. I was amused and impressed with Liu’s work as always.
About the Hiding in the City – Sunflower
The Hiding in the City – Sunflower is yet another impressive body painting masterpiece of Liu Bolin in 2012. The printed photo of this masterpiece measures 53 1/4 x 70 7/8 inches (135 x 180 cm). He had once again exhibited his superb skills in visual arts. It is fascinating to see that it is possible to become invisible with body painting. What an artistic trick and way to hide in the city!
