Saturday, May 20th was the last day of Liu Bolin’s Hacker Art exposition at the Magda Danysz Gallery.
The uniqueness of Bolin’s art is that in the majority of his pieces, he is hidden in plain sight. He paints himself well enough to camouflage into the background, be it a rack of magazines, a row of cars, or a national monument in Paris. Bolin’s work also revolves around technology, and how it affects human communication. Several of his pieces are heads made of wires and control panels. Another piece is a minimalistic egg, depicted on a phone screen, cradled in a nest. Bolin says that his art came about of expression, and anger with the government and social progress.
Bolin’s artwork has been displayed around the world and fetches prices upwards of ¥700,000.
