Germany-based artist and visual designer Yang Liu has created a series of truthful graphics that explains the differences in Eastern and Western culture. 

Yang Liu was born in China but has lived in Germany since she was 14, and thus she is able to explain the differences in cultures. 

Based on her own experience, she created minimalistic visualizations using simple symbols and shapes to convey just how different the two cultures are.

From the big bang all the way to Usain Bolt’s 9.58 second hundred- meter dash record in 2009, French graphic designer René Mambembé takes us on a minimalist journey through history.
