Artist Yang Liu Shows The Cultural Differences Between ‘East And West’

Graphic artist Yang Liu has a sharp eye for cultural comparison, honed by personal experience. In 1990, at the age of 13, she moved from Beijing to Berlin. After exactly 13 years there, she started an illustrated project to document her dual experiences in China and Germany.

How Do Gender Roles Differ From Country To Country


Originally created as 47 simple blue and red posters, Yang Liu’s nonjudgmental series playfully captures the difference between cultures: from workplace hierarchy to restaurant etiquette. It has since been shown at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Germany and was published in 2007 by art book authority Taschen with the title East Meets West.
