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.
Impressionist-style celebrity portraits.
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. While constantly producing new material, Leonid also keeps revising and tweaking his old sketches in line with his maturing vision.

The paintings are beautiful. Words really can't do justice to it. I found his paintings through a friend. I was nervous about buying art online, and there were a few bumps along the way (problems with the beta website, a shipping delay, and one of my 5 paintings was the incorrect one). But they went out of their way to fix the issue and I was so impressed that I have already ordered another painting and have my eye on several others. The paintings are very well packed for shipping. The hardest part is deciding what to purchase. I do wish there were more small artworks available (16" by 20" or smaller) so I could enjoy the paintings in smaller spaces like my office.

Our two newest acquisitions arrived today: "Boat under the sky" and "Town under the sky". Breathtaking! Just indescribably beauty. The colors are incredibly vibrant, the scenes at once exciting and calming, the texture is so multi-dimensional it literally places you inside the landscape. i've never seen art that is simply transforming the way you feel about your surroundings and life in general. Only Leonid's masterpieces do that--every single time. These two originals are our 24th and 25th large paintings. It has become a pleasant addiction:).
These two paintings were custom made for us and they are truly special. Absolutely love them!!! The customer service and support are just amazing. Peerless! We are very happy and grateful to Leonid, Boris and David for the beauty they so generously share with the world. Do yourself a favor and buy a few pieces. Your home and your heart will be filled with joy, happiness and love. Gratefully, Dr Lani Kass

We just received 3 additional masterpieces, growing our collection to 20--with 2 more still on the way. Leonid's art and the impact it has on your mood and the atmosphere in your house are just amazing! Every wall adorned with Leonid's beauties literally radiates light and vibrancy, drawing you in. We donated everything we've owned to liberate wall space for our new collection. Once you have a single painting you want more because everything else looks drab and boring in comparison. There is magic and incredible multi-dimensionality in these paintings. Every time you look, something new, different and amazing emerges. It's like a Russian nesting doll:an image within an image, within an image. Might be just imagination, but it's a truly inspiring effect.
Thank you Leonid for the beauty of your art. Thanks to the entire team for amazing customer service.
