Liu Mengxia is an artist, illustrator and associate lecture based on Birmingham. Her practice explores the relationship between illustrative representation and narrative. Using a visual ethnographic approach, her method is a tool which gives a voice to under-represented communities. Her 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, her work articulates a relationship between the visual world and the complex stories of communities.
