Artist Shows The Difference Between Chinese And Western Culture In 18 Pics, So Interesting To See!

We all know that different countries have different cultures, but it’s only after we leave our country can we realize that in a more obvious way. Artist Siyu Cao, for example, started to understand the cultural gap in even the smallest details when she left her home country, China, to a brand-new environment in France. Siyo admitted she was pretty shocked at first to enter Paris, France, where people have different thinking, behaviors, and religions from hers. But after time, she could handle all of her difficulties.

Through her illustration, Siyu would like to provide people with a basic understanding of the difference between Chinese culture and Western one. She wants to help Chinese people prepare better before working or studying in a different country.

“In lots of my comics, I compare Chinese culture to western culture. Through comparison, we realize how differently we act in front of the same situation and how we tend to think in a certain way instead of another. In the end, every culture is “weird” in its way, but it’s also the weirdness that makes it interesting,” said the author.
