Fashion Designers Get Lost in Lui Bolin's Art

Known internationally as the “Invisible Man,” Lui Bolin is renowned for painting himself into the background of notable locations around the world. His recent exhibition Lost in Art at Eli Klein Fine Art showcased his newest pieces, including his recent collaboration with Harper’s Bazaar and fashion powerhouses Gaultier, Lanvin, Missoni, and Valentino.

Liu Bolin met with Jean Paul Gaultier, Elber Albaz of Lanvin, Angela Missoni, and Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli from Valentino, as they became the latest subjects of his camouflaging performance.

The designers underwent the process of becoming nearly invisible within a background of their most celebrated signature designs.

Creating four fantastic photographs, this collaboration stands as a true and marvelous beacon of the merging of fashion and art. In terms of design, it provokes some interesting thoughts regarding how designers can not uncommonly be a seemingly invisible force behind their well-known work. For more information, click here
