Kenny Scharf is an icon of both street and fine art in NYC, and Lui Bolin is the fascinating artist who paints himself into disguise, blending into the backgrounds in which he places himself in front of. The two artists just teamed up in NYC for a collaborative piece.

Recently, Wooster Collecitve spoke with Bolin's galleriest, Eli Klein, saying "How cool would it be if Liu Bolin were to camouflage himself into Kenny Scharf's mural on Bowery and Houston?"

Well, they pulled it off, with Bolin flying in from China to be painted by Scharf, and Bolin's assistants, in front of Bolin's mural on Bowery and Houston.
