    "If you've ever seen Dan start a painting you were probably there when he finished it too... the guy is a machine! Defntly one of my favorite people in Atlanta and a refreshingly motivational force in the south. just guy doing his own thing and he can hold his drink like a sumo champ!"

    "dan:may has the ability to create a whole new world. Maybe at a first glance it´s not a very nice one to live in but once you get familiar with those creatures you can´t help but love them. And you can´t deny that they all interact with one another, in strange ways, yes.... but they make a very nice, bizarre and unique society."

    "What else can be said other than absolutely mind blowing, breath taking, artistic beauty? His paintings are like a playground for my imagination, a place to run and frolic in the strange and beautiful. Never stop painting, never stop creating."

    "Dan may is a totally sick individual. His artwork rules the world. He is able to paint microscopic bacteria without the aid of binoculars. His bright colored universe is a joy to behold. He is maybe the most famous artist in america today."

    Colin~Johnson says:

    "dan's newly and rapidly developing paintings are really a wonder to behold! it's been great fun to watch as he heads down his own path into some sort of surrealistic Burton-esque candyland. where playfully miscreant fruits and vegetables run gleefully through a colorful abstraction of painted patterns, paint splotches, and scrapes. and this guy is also one hell of a painter! on top of all that he's very prolific. at this juncture i would usually resort to profanities since i'm not nearly as quick in the completion of my pieces. however, dan is a really nice guy on top of all that other kind shit that i just mentioned so i'll let it slide this time! but go check out his stuff. he's probably posting something right now!!"
