A series “Camouflage” by Liu Bolin shows an amusing concept that makes it a first class artwork. All his works in this series express an obvious motive of common people remaining unnoticed by their governments. Common man is an invisible man in the world of today is what he says in his clever way. A feeling universal enough so that it can be understood by all the nations of the world.
