Sculptor Long Ly is originally from Saigon, Vietnam. “I lived happily with my family in Saigon until 1978 when we escaped the communist regime at aged only 8 years old. Along with my family we left for an unknown future on a rickety fishing boat.” He then settled in the UK and completed his schooling. Long went on to a variety of jobs but always had art as his passion. Today he has become a unique artist with one of a kind designs.
His pieces are made from recycled metal, ranging from pots and pans to plumbing pipes and carpet dividers – his imagination shows no bounds. Daily items that you would not consider art at all have been turned in to stunning creations with Long’s ingenuity and skill.
Long is featured at a fabulous new art gallery based at Lower Exbury Farm, called the Palais des Vaches where you can buy his stunningly unique works.
