"Mai Long is proficient in recognizing the beauty of a physionomy, the charm of an antiqui, a seashore - scape,
a rice -field in rainy season... To the aesthetic eye, everything has its own beauty, a beauty that ice-cold hearts
can sense never. His work is the combination of East long-standing tradition and contemporaneity of unique, perfect
art, together with the brush of extreme lyricalness and liberality.
The beautiful of the world around us and the love of Mai Long towards this Universe. It is the artistic substance
of the painter."
I deem it was completely unmeaning if the painting describes merely the appearance of the objective existence -
I try my best to discover the atent depth, making the spirit of objects move and brighten, creating the vivid impression
for their beauty.
