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.

Imaginative flower sets and still lifes.

I remember I was on Amazon.com looking for artwork for my walls at home. I don't remember which painting I came across, all I know is that when I saw Mr. Afremov's painting, I was stunning, gasped and my jaw dropped and I stared at the painting for a very long time. I had to know who the artist was so I went online and learned all about Mr. Afremov and his struggle to paint what he wanted and to sell his painting how he wanted. You have arrived Mr. Afremov. I am honored and excited to own several of your paintings in my home. Thank you for signing the back of my paintings, that is an awesome gift to your fans.

Thank you very much for my amazing "When Dreams Come True" painting. I have never purchased a painting before and was very nervous purchasing one online. I am in Australia, so I was expecting there to be a long wait for my purchase. This was not the case. I am so happy with the communication I received via email regarding the progress of my order, it gave me peace of mind. I initially purchased this painting as a gift for a family member, however I cannot part with it. I think I could get addicted to purchasing these uplifting paintings. Warm regards to all the staff x

I previously posted that I had just discovered your amazing art and was unable to afford any of it, at least for the time being. I had mentioned that I would look for a print in the mean time. Today I received an e-mail for a site that is all affordable prints. Luckily I was given a gift card for Christmas and I will be able to afford one of the small prints.I am so excited to be able to own a print of your amazing pieces of art. I am often stuck in my bed for long periods of time and I know that being able to see the print on my wall with all of the vibrant colors and beautiful scenes will have a very positive impact on my mood and mind. Now the only problem is picking just one.I hope that if there is anyone else in my financial situation that you find this helpful.
