Liu Mengxia practice focuses on developing reportage illustration and perspective drawing which explores the relationship between illustrative representation and narrative. Using a visual ethnographic approach, my method is a tool which gives a voice to under-represented communities. My work is illustrative in form and strives to create new approaches to representational practice that reflect the complexities of the multicultural world in which we live. In essence, my work articulates a relationship between the visual world and the complex stories of communities.
