“East Meets West” by Yang Liu

My mother emailed me some work by Yang Liu, a 35-year-old Chinese-German artist.  One of her projects, “East Meets West,” was first exhibited in Germany a few years ago and features pictographs representing the differences between Eastern and Western (specifically Chinese and German) cultures.  I think her depictions are accurate and clever.  Here are a few pieces from the series:

Sense of Self

Confronting a Problem


Status of Children

Status of Leader
