East vs West: cultural differences by Yang Liu

Yang Liu was born in China but moved to Germany to be educated. Having grown up in two very different places with very different traditions, Yang Liu was able to experience first-hand what the underlying differences were between the two cultures.

With a people’s perspective on it it all, Yang Liu has created these posters and images using simple symbols and shapes to convey just how different the two cultures are. The blue side is Germany and the red side is China.

Some of them are pretty hilarious, and one could easily relate to them based on our day to day experience with people!
