After Liu Bolin watched the village where he worked bulldozed by the Chinese government, he created his series Hiding in the City. In the series, Bolin meticulously paints himself to blend in with landscapes as diverse as the grocery store to the Great Wall of China. In this way, he comments on the invisibility of artists within a society that fails to protect them. The series was so prolific and popular that he expanded it to Venice as a comment on the history of art, and New York to tackle the relationship between man and the object he creates.

In 2012, he was asked to take part in a series with fashion designers Gaultier, Valentino, Lanvin and Missoni that was featured in the March 2012 issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine.

The work of Venezuelan artist Marilyn Rondón leads one to think: “Would every wall would be better with a giant hand-painted mural on it?”.

Hand painted marks and dashes form the essence of the work created by Matias Armendaris. Part pattern, part art, the pieces walk the line between random versus orchestrated. Much like the markings left on the scrap of paper found next to pens in an art store, Armendaris achieves a casual fluidity of motion and spontaneity in his creations. Check out his blog to view more of his visual musings.
