“A photograph is always invisible, it is not it that we see.” —Roland Barthes

The Beijing-based artist, Liu Bolin, often known as “The Invisible Man,” creates works of art that operate on many levels. Part painting, photography, conceptual art and multi-faceted social critique, Bolin’s work is testament to his courage and determination to create work despite the cultural and political constraints he lives under.

In a recent TED talk, Bolin discussed his ideas and the motivations behind his work. His exploration of becoming “invisible” is a means to provoke ideas and for us to question the “inter-canceling relationship between our civilization and its development.” Needless to say, his arresting images are impressive to behold and painstakingly executed.

For an opportunity to meet the artist and to see his latest solo show, Liu Bolin: Mask, Eli Klein Fine Art is hosting an opening and reception tomorrow evening here in New York. Hopefully, Liu Bolin won’t be too hard to find. —Lane Nevares
