Undeniably, a look at a piece of art depicts creativity or the mind of the artist. Pieces of arts from the east depict observation, realism with one dominant idea presented graphically with a strong motif. Edouard Mamet formed the foundation of western art that portrayed elegance with different bold patches of colour. While the westerners are skilled in geometry and can precisely render light and shade on their arts, they fail in the painting skills. Most of westerners art too incorporate contrasting feature like smoothness and roughness, distance and proximity, depth and shallowness. On the other hand, easterners like the Japanese have enormous painting skills with less geometry. Most of their paintings are based on observation but do not include aspects of light (yang) and shadow (Yin). Easterners and westerners have picked pieces of knowledge in arts from each other forming hybrid arts with feature from each other. This paper will examine the works of prints of Bijin, Cheret, Lautrec, and Whistler to determine if cultural hybridism is good, inevitable, and need maintenance. After discovery of Lithography by German Alloys Senefelder in 1798, Mamet adopted it and produced the first Lithograph called “The Cats Rendezvous,” which is the first poster used for advertisement. Lithography and early Japanese woodcuts had similarities in that both achieved dramatic effects by use of colour and flat colour areas. Although Japanese e-prints had circulated since the 1850s, their influence in the
western art poster came in the year 1870.
