“Travel lets you learn things that you never knew before. It lets you readjust your perception,” muses Liu Xiaodong. Louis Vuitton tapped the contemporary Chinese artist for its latest Travel Book project that brought Liu on an artist’s expedition in South Africa. Featuring paintings, photographs and original mixed media pieces, the latest edition sheds light onto the vibrant wildlife and communities of the multi-ethnic country.

The French luxury house’s Travel Book collection is both a celebration of art and travel, having previously explored cities like Paris, London and New York. Each volume is carefully crafted through the eyes of a global artist that any world class traveler would enjoy. Check out a preview of Liu Xiaodong’s trip above.
