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 promised myself that I would comment on my experience purchasing a painting from Mr. Afremov, good or bad. I have read so many negative comments on other sites (as well as positive ones). I can truly say that, from start to finish, our experience has been amazing. Mr. Afremov’s team is fabulous – such great customer service (very compassionate and dedicated to making us happy). Delivery was as promised. And the painting is just so beautiful to us, so meaningful. It is art at its finest…I wasn’t looking for the exact same painting pictured on the web-site (and it is VERY clearly indicated that it will not be on the site!). I was looking for something that spoke to us, a one-of-a-kind, and it was delivered. The more we stare at it, the more it speaks to us. We will cherish it forever. I have already ordered two more (again, amazing customer service). I am recommending his beautiful work to everyone else I know. It almost seemed too good to be true - I can promise you it is true.

I seen one of Leonid's paintings and wondered who the artist is. I asked and once I found his site, I bought one of Paris paintings. I have received nothing but compliments on it since I hung in my home. Brilliant artist.

I live in London. Bought "romantic aura" and it arrived promptly. It is so vibrant when you look at it from a distance and you can lose yourself studying the strokes of the palette knife closely. It is Leonid's recreation-I do not care that it is recreation. It is the artists one. Two days later, my son came with his girlfriend. He bought one and his girlfriend bought two earning the right for a third free one. I showed a photo of my painting to a colleague of mine last Friday. Today, Monday, he showed me what he has bought from Leonid. That makes a total of 6 paintings in London. Well done Leonid.
