Inspired by the numerous overseas art trips I went and culture insights with many foreign artists, curators, and friends. I discovered a common formula to sum up the general influences relating from the community, government and of course, the historical cultures.
FROM WITHIN TO EXTERIOR and VISE VERSA
A decent example like the culture of HIP-HOP origin from the States to the rest of the world, and countries like Singapore or Shanghai absorbing exterior influences; becoming a victim of globalization.
FROM THE TOP TO THE BOTTOM and VISE VERSA
A huge capital like Beijing, draining from the strong Chinese propaganda and traditions influences to the people; unlike the city of Guangzhou, the people from the commoners inspiring the top level with improvements and demands.
