What makes Leonid Afremov paintings so special?
After years of creative experiments, Afremov has developed his own painting manner that makes his pictures immediately recognizable and uniquely appealing. How is it different from what we usually call art?
To add volume to his works, the artist uses a very peculiar Impasto technique. By laying oil paint in thick overlapping strokes, he creates a layered texture that gives his paintings a distinct three-dimensional sense.
Instead of brushes, Afremovwields a rather unusual instrument called palette knife to achieve spectacular visual effects. Pressing the blade down at different angles allows him to apply strokes of different size and shape, from large chunky splashes to the finest lines drawn with the very tip of the knife.
Afremov paintings strike the eye with a rich color palette. They resemble motley patchworks where all shades of the spectrum are combined into one cheerful mixture, so vivid the eye can barely hold it. That’s why people find his canvas pictures so fascinating and positive.
In Afremov’s manner, color obviously prevails over shape. Here you won’t find photographic details or precisely reproduced outlines. His artis the world of imagination where how you paint is much more important than what you paint. Each artwork in this gallery is a reflection of Afremov’s soul that captures meaningful moments of life in all their inexplicable charm and striking profundity.

Like every artist, Leonid has his own creative preferences. While striving for versatility and trying his skillful hand in different genres, he predominantly paints:
Vibrant cityscapes depicting rain-soaked streets, quiet autumn parks and lover couples strolling down lantern-lit alleys.
Captivating and thought-provokinglandscapes.
Imaginative flower sets and still lifes.

During his long and prolific career, Afremov has created hundreds of remarkable art samples many of which already found their buyers in the face of private collectors and public establishments. On the pages of his vast art gallery, you’ll find numerous paintings available for sale, from original canvasses to 100% hand-painted recreations of earlier works.

I remember I was on Amazon.com looking for artwork for my walls at home. I don't remember which painting I came across, all I know is that when I saw Mr. Afremov's painting, I was stunning, gasped and my jaw dropped and I stared at the painting for a very long time. I had to know who the artist was so I went online and learned all about Mr. Afremov and his struggle to paint what he wanted and to sell his painting how he wanted. You have arrived Mr. Afremov. I am honored and excited to own several of your paintings in my home. Thank you for signing the back of my paintings, that is an awesome gift to your fans.

Only after ordering City By The Lake did I watch a video of you painting a recreation and read some reviews. One review in particular had me worried. I didn't expect the painting to be as detailed as the original but I hoped I hadn't made a mistake placing the order. I have just received it. I am thrilled to say it has MASSIVELY exceeded my expectations. It is almost as detailed as the original and without a side by side comparison could be mistaken for it. It is truly stunning. Thank you so much.

We are now the proud owners of 14 (!!!!) of Leonid Afremov's masterpieces. And, no, we don't own a gallery, though our home begins to look like one. Our initial order was the first time ever we ordered art on line and literally fell in love. Our newest installment of 8 masterpieces arrived yesterday and it's simply breath-taking. We bought out Leonid's Jerusalem series--all of it because the paintings are so beautiful a choice was just impossible. So we bought it all!! Sounds crazy, but it's spectacular! What an amazing talent! Leonid recreates everything! Light, air, flowers, stones, air, color, atmosphere--it's all alive and real. I smile every time I look at the pictures. No material possession has ever made me so very happy! These masterpieces literally lift your mood!!! You just can't be sad with so much beauty, color, movement and energy surrounding you. Phenomenal!!!
Many thanks to the Master and his two sons, Boris and David. Leonid's remarkable genius is enhanced by his sons' acumen and superb attitude. Customer care and attention are second to none. Truly a pleasure to deal with. Customer satisfaction is job one--and it's for real, not empty words. Immediate, courteous response. Rare quality these days.
We have 3 originals coming and are excited to welcome these new additions to our already amazing collection. Meanwhile, we are enjoying the beauty we already have. Trashed every other art work to liberate wall space for Leonid's masterpieces. Do yourself a favor and buy a couple of paintings! On second thought, make yourself real happy and buy a dozen! Such amazing beauty is rarely affordable. This true art is.

From the moment I saw Mr. Afremov's work, I was entranced. I was also stunned to find such beautiful work at such affordable prices. I am now the proud and very happy owner of two pieces of Mr. Afremov's work and I would be thrilled to add more. Both paintings (purchased at separate times) arrived in perfect condition within a few days of shipping. Customer service is wonderful, they responded to an email I sent immediately and courteously. As gorgeous as the paintings looked on my computer screen, it doesn't compare to the way the colors shimmer and glow hanging on my walls. If you're thinking about purchasing, stop thinking and just do it. You will not regret it!
