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.

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.

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.

Your paintings are so alive 'n' colorful! You're also entertaining to watch as you develop your beautifully vibrant works of art on YouTube.
I've shared with family and others who are instantly pleased when they see your work. My personal favorite is "A Day Of Feelings."
You are now among my favorite artists including Claude Monet & Vincent Van Gogh!

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've ordered 2 paintings from Mr. Afremov. The first one, Night Cafe, arrived yesterday (Friday, June 12), and it is absolutely beautiful. The photos of his work on his web page get your attention with their style and use of colors. But you can have no idea of just how beautiful his paintings actually are until you actually have one in hand. Not just his use of color, but also his mastery of painting using only a palette knife, which gives the painting a layered 3-d effect. If you're even thinking about buying one of his works, don't think.....buy. You will not be disappointed.
