Leng Jun, Vice President of Wuhan Painting Academy, is one of the representatives of superrealism Large Wall Art painting in China. He is also the judge of the oil painting exhibition area of this art exhibition. In Leng Jun's view, the works selected for this Oversized Abstract Art exhibition "only a very small number are true hyperrealism, most of them are realism."

But Xiao Feng also said, "Big Contemporary Painting is not necessarily a powerful country. As an official national exhibition, the theme of the National Art Exhibition has a certain tendency. Although the style of the works absorbs something of modernity, it is still not enough. Large Handmade Abstract Painting language should be colorful, not just realistic. Compared with the world trend, we still need to work hard.
