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 am very happy with my painting. The price I paid was good and the painting looks lovely. It came well packaged in about 6 weeks (to Australia). The colours and texture make me happy every time I look at it!

I purchased the Eric Clapton portrait oil painting, however, I received a painting that is significantly different from the one that is advertised. The painting I received does not look like Eric Clapton.

I randomly found Mr. Afremov's art while searching around Deviantart. Ever since I first laid eyes upon the bright colors and breathtaking paintings I have found myself obsessed. My searching led me to his personal website. I followed him on facebook for some time too before making a purchase. It all seemed too good to believe. I placed my order, purchasing "Night of Expectations" and "On the Way to Morning". I was overcome with such excitement and eagerly waited until I got the email confirming that they had been shipped. When they finally reached my home I eagerly opened the package and literally sat in front of my treasured paintings and just took in every detail for probably 20 minutes. I was so eager to get them hanging on my wall. They look fabulous! I keep eyeing the site and checking out the deals. I am positive that this will not be my last purchase! Thank you for providing the world with such wonderful and inspirational art! Thank you for making it very affordable as well!
