Does the country we live in influence our artistic voice?

I am just wondering if and how the country we live in influences our artistic voice. 

I never had been reflecting about this before, but a couple of weeks ago, a friend told me: "Looking at your paintings, one can see that you live in Spain!" 
I began to ask myself how my work would look like if I had stayed in Germany, or perhaps moved to Argentina, Finland or China.
As I already experienced that I am not completely the same person according to the language I am speaking, I probably would not be 100% the same visual artist if I had stayed in my country. Interesting thought.
