Liu Bolin's 'Hiding in New York' series showcases the latest work from this enormously talented artist. Bolin has been featured on the Trend Hunter site numerous times before, and each of his latest artistic endeavors instantly become viral sensations. The latest artistic creation Bolin took part in was in New York City at the Tiles For America monument, which represents the lives lost from 9/11.

Liu Bolin's 'Hiding in New York' series shows the countless hours of labor-intense painting that went into this project, in order to get Bolin to seamlessly blend into the monumental wall on Greenwich Street in NYC. Bolin's latest work can be further viewed at the Eli Klein Fine Art gallery in New York.

Implications - Artists who reference monuments and historical moments that many can relate to further add impact to their works of art. Liu Bolin's latest series can be interpreted as a reference to national pride following the fourth of July.
