East and west is by no means a mere geographical parting; to any Chinese living in Britain, it represents markedly different sets of logics and ways of living. With these two systems colliding with each other in his mind and exerting their respective influences on his art, Liu Jincheng, a Chinese artist who has been in Britain for over 20 years, has formed his own artistic style and language.
