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 love this painting! It looks even more amazing in person than it does in the picture. I have never been to Vitebsk, but I got this painting because it looks exactly like a street corner I passed every day when I was studying in a medieval town in Italy. Shipping took forever since it was international, but it was well worth the wait. I hung it across from my bed so it's the first thing I see when I get up in the morning, and I definitely intend to purchase more of Leonid's paintings.

I have been looking at Leonid's paintings for a while online and one day i started buying the ones i really enjoyed. I now have 9 paintings altogether and each one is extremely well done. A large amount of time, effort, and skill goes into each painting this man makes. I have 2 originals and 7 recreations and each one is superb. This artist is extremely good at making super vibrant, very uplifting paintings that I still spend hours staring at when the mood catches me right and i have the time. I would definitely recommend this artist and site to anyone who needs some amazing artwork. I will definitely buy some more work soon enough if i can find more walls!

We received our painting "Melody of the Night" in December and have only just got around to posting this testimonial. We are over the moon with it especially as it was to celebrate being married for 20 years. Every day we get a buzz when looking at it and I am sure we will be buying more in the future.

My two paintings arrived in record time in Perth, Australia. The ability to track the shipment was excellent. But most of all the paintings have illuminated my house, and I can't stop smiling each time I look at them. Your art is amazing. Congratulations.
