Liu Bolin Update - NYC, Stockholm

Plugging a plug:  Remember this old post on artist Liu Bolin?

A drive-by comment from Christina notifies us that:  Liu Bolin will be exhibiting at Eli Klein Fine Art in New York from June 29 - August 28, 2011. Eli Klein Fine Art represents him exclusively in North and South America. More images can be found on www.ekfineart.com.

NYTimes: Liu Bolin’s Disappearing Act
Naturally, Klein would like to raise Liu’s profile in the United States, so he is helping to organize a series of photo shoots during Liu’s planned visit to New York in June. The locations have not been chosen yet, but Klein expects Liu to disappear in front of ground zero, as well as in such well-known New York settings as a subway car and a bodega.

New Yorkers, keep your eyes opened!

Those are pretty neat photos - looks almost like the Predator or an animal with camouflage abilities (like a chameleon or octopus).
