Title: Booming Asia
Comment: A fat Asian man, reminding us of the well-fed version of Buddha, is laughing loudly and satisfied. He is painted on former packagings of chinese instant noodles and above his head the word „Hungry“ is written.
The rapid growth of the economy in several Asian countries is a big concern for many people in the western world. Countries which were seen as inferior are becoming more and more equal or even better competitors in many fields – especially China is under a special observation and newspapers love to predict its future as the next superpower. With the growing wealth people in China are starting to adapt to a western lifestyle with its workship of bottomless consume. So although the fat asian man seems like he just had already enough food he still graves for more.
