Well, you’ve all been asking for it. Here’s the final series of cultural icons from Yang Liu. These icons were designed to reflect the differences throughout Western and Eastern cultures. Yang Liu was born in Beijing, China and later moved to Germany to further her education. Her work was recently showcased at the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
This was a three part series.
Part One includes: Anger, Making Contacts, Definition of Beauty, Elderly in Day-to-Day Life, In the Restaurant, Me, Handling of Problems
Part Two includes: Queue When Waiting, Shower Timing, Sundays on the Road, The Child, and Party
