Harper’s bazaar magazine has Design Boom images of their latest collaboration with contemporary chinese artist liu bolin released in their march 2012 issue. Bolin is typically known to be the subject of his works, camouflaging himself into carefully selected environments. However for this project with the hearst magazines publication the artist has removed himself from being the focus of his work. Instead he celebrates four major fashion houses: jean paul gaultier, lanvin, missoni and valentino, by selecting their designers as his subjects and getting them to ‘lose themselves in their work’, painting them into their signature designs and patterns.
