Liu Bolin was born in China’s Shandong province in 1973, earning his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Shandong College of Arts in 1995 and his Master of Fine Arts from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing in 2001. Liu belongs to the generation that came of age in the early 1990s, when China emerged from the rubble of the Cultural Revolution and was beginning to enjoy rapid economic growth and relative political stability.

Also known as “The Invisible Man,” Liu Bolin’s most popular works are from his “Hiding in the City” series; photographic works that began as performance art in 2005. His work has been exhibited in museums around the world. Since his first solo shows in Beijing in 1998, Liu Bolin’s work has received international recognition. Among other international venues, his distinctive photographs and sculptures have been shown at the major contemporary photography festival Les Recontres D’Arles. He currently lives and works in Beijing, China.
