These designs by artist Yang Liu are a nice way of comparing Chinese and Western culture.

Yang Liu is Chinese and educated in Germany. She created these images to describe the differences she saw between life in the west and life in China.

The most striking for me is the one about weather – do people in the West feel miserable in the rain because they are taught to feel like that? What do you think?

The London Paper shows the whole collection.
