What others say about Yim Mau-kun’s drawing

“Yim’s drawings are full of depth. This depth is the depth of human beings in general…His drawings are not only depiction but also deep thoughts. And during his painting process, he achieves greater and greater depth like a sculptor carving deeper and deeper into the wood.” – Lin Yong, Vice President of Association of Chinese Artists

 “It’s only recently that I have become aware of the artist Mau-Kun Yim.  We have not met, yet I feel that I know the man.  Through his numerous handsomely illustrated texts, he reveals himself to be a craftsman of surpassing ability and sensibility.  The years of classical training and diligent study – as in the works of the masters that came before – resonate in his virtuosity and boldness of handling.  He is a dedicated and selfless teacher – he is a man in love with his calling.” – Ned Jacob

What others say about Yim Mau-kun’s oil painting

“Yim’s portraits not only convey likeness in appearance, but also likeness in expression and spirit. His nudes are vivacious, realistic figures with rich facial expressions. The delicate shape and texture of the body generate a mellow and romantic ambiance.” – Art Magazine, China

 “Beautiful paintings like Lady in Shimmering Light, by Yim Mau-kun, … transcend time and distance. Though Mau-kun has lived all of his 64 years in the Far East, this stunning work features a classic quality that crosses geographic and cultural boundaries…. There is, after all, no need for a translator when it comes to brilliant brushstrokes and powerful compositions.” – The Artist Magazine

 “Perhaps the most striking element to Master Yim’s painting and drawing is the use of light, which infuses his art with a sense of hopefulness; a feeling of lightness and emotional connection with the subject. This connection is magnified when color is present, and Master Yim’s understanding of color in its tactile use and symbolic relationship embody his subjects with a welcoming aura that allows the viewer to approach his work without inhibition.” – Damian Goidich

 “I think Yim Mau-Kun’s work is amazing. I am a painter/draughtsman and a teacher. I have a great love for work that is both filled with knowledge of the old masters and unique at the same time.  I believe your work has both.” – Richard Morris
