West vs. East

Even for photos and commercials made in Asian countries, it’s clear that the people there are not like us. In cafes and restaurants are very noisy, instead of a queue there is a chaotic crowd and also instead of soda they drink tea.

The artist Yang Liu lived in China for 14 years and then moved to Germany. She knows firsthand the differences between Eastern traditions of the West. Being the kind of creative girl, she created a series of minimalist illustrations, which has demonstrated these differences.

To the left in the blue square shows the behavior of Western man in a given situation, right in the red box is east.
