"Lei Liang's painting contains strong emotional billows, a tangled combination of despair and optimism, gloom and vehemence, sorrow and joy, and at the same time, there exists a permanent placid as a sangfroid feeling after big sorrow and big happiness experiences." "No person can arrive to accomplish this special art assembly without idiosyncratic personality and powerful control." "In contemporary painting circles in China, we can rarely find at present any painter such as Lei Liang, so devoted to his own interior sight without any antiquated conventions."
-- Luo Shiping: "An Undulate World in Pure Colours -- Lei Liang's Oil Painting on Rice Paper"

"Indeed, this is extremely valuable for a modern man with such a pure impulse and recluse quality." "...we will certainly have opportunity to see this uprising new star painting in the sky a magnificent "Shan Hai Jing"."
-- Liu Yan: "Pure Heart in Magnificent Mountains and Waters -- Lei Liang and His Painting"

"Powerful sentimental colours with a striking personal pattern, and synthetic eastern and western languages with a fantastic atmosphere in idealism."
-- Hua Gu: "The Style of Lei Liang's Oil Painting"
