Chinese artist Liu Bolin has long been famed for his incredible ability to camouflage himself into his surroundings not through photo editing techniques but flawless painting, light management and angle awareness; now, his 'A Colorful World?' collection offers more of the same, expressing the artist's perspective on culture, society and politics.

The collection refers to the ubiquitous nature of ads, products and other elements of consumerism that blur our understanding of truly important global issues.

Symbolically speaking, the 'A Colorful World?' collection aims to address the circumstances responsible for destroying lives, but that are largely ignored by the public. For example, the 'Cancer Village' photograph features 23 people camouflaged into the farmland while a chemical factory in the background stands tall. All the individuals pictured in the stunning work were affected by a 100% increase in cancer mortality in their rural town.
