Invisible Man Artist?

The artist dubbed the "invisible man" created unique photographs, in which he paints himself so as to "disappear" into his surroundings.

The Invisible Man has been known to spend up to 10 painstaking hours at each location adding fine detail to his entire body until he is virtually undetectable.

Something happened to the artist in China, his mother land. Can anyone tell me what problem did the invisible man have with the government?

The Invisible Man experienced resistance from his own government and in 2005 his Beijing studio was forcibly shut down over his political works.
China sucks, he's a wonderful artist.

He claims they make a statement about his place in society. He sees himself as an outsider whose artistic efforts are not always valued, especially in his native country.

Then, with a little help from an assistant, he paints his body to merge as seamlessly as possible with what is behind him.

It means people walking by while he is carrying out his performances often have no idea he is nearby until he begins to move.
