Et annet sted (Another place)

Xueting Yang (born in 1988 in Kaifeng) is a Chinese cartoonist and illustrator living in Oslo. In 2011, she started at The Art Academy in Oslo. She made her debut as an artist and writer with the comic book "Et annet sted" (Another place) in 2014. The book was a depiction of her own experiences when moving to Norway. In the personal narrative, she was inspired, among other things, by Chinese poetic tradition and drew Norwegians as hedgehogs. Visually, she draws inspiration both from classical Chinese illustration and from Western traditions. "Et annet sted" (Another place) was awarded with Kulturdepartementets cartoon prize and it won silver Årets vakreste bøker in Norway. She has also made illustrations for Morgenbladet, among others.
