“The use of craft in any medium is to pay homage to one’s teacher and is the basis of all important work within any art form. Couple with the releasing of one’s sub-conscious impulses into that specific form is in my opinion the most valuable of all the many attributes of the artist.”
“Sunny Apinchapong-Yang is able to institue craft with his sensitive understanding of the sub-conscious and can best be described by one word……master.” Los Angeles, 1990

“The paintings of Sunny Apinchapong-Yand were unknown to me before I saw them in Dublin a few years ago. They provided a sharp contrast to the present Irish fashion. In portraitures he has a marked gift, and when I saw his exhibition in Dublin my money would have been on his future as a portrait painter…at first glace. On further consideration, I decided that his scenic pictures are at present his happiest.” Dublin, Ireland 1989
