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.

I ordered 3 paintings from here and I was so pleased with them. I was worried because I had never ordered art online but it turned out really well! This seems to be a family business and everyone I worked with was great. For anyone who is having some doubts about ordering online or the quality of work ...please don't worry. Everything will probably turn out to exceed expectations and if any concerns come up you will find the family takes good care of you! At least this was my experience so I would assume it's the same for many. Thank you Afremov family.

I have never found myself drawn to art but recently I came across a picture of one of your paintings, Loneliness is Autumn, and was struck by its depth and beauty. It is breathtaking and visually the most alive piece I have ever seen! I am in the middle of the most excruciating time in my life and this painting moves and stirs me in ways art never has before. It literally eases the ache in my life to look at it. I began the search for the name of the painting or artist and finally discovered this sight. What an amazing giftedness you have Mr. Afremov! I hope to own the painting some day.

I found Leonid Afremov's work through Pintrest a few years ago and lusted after his paintings since. I love his use of bright color and reflection. I received "Love by the Lake" for Christmas and now have it proudly displayed in my home.
