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.

Walked into a print and frame shop and was captured by a picture that had just been framed. The owner thought it came from America! Wrote down the artists name to google and here I am wondering what I shall purchase. Smitten from the first time I saw your work.....

Gracias Sr. Afremov!! Sus pinturas me llenan de felicidad y puedo quedarme mirándolas horas y nunca me canso de hacerlo. Actualmente tengo cuatro y en cuanto pueda seguiré comprando porque usted tiene un don que me ha llegado a lo más profundo. Y sobre todo muchas gracias por poner su arte al alcance de gente corriente que no tiene los recursos para gastarse cantidades elevadas en arte.

I've been struggling to find a piece of art I love for my living room wall for 1.5 years. I stumbled upon Mr Afremov's work by happenstance and fell in love. It is often difficult for artists to have a painting filled with color that is not overbearing with those bursts of vibrance. Mr. Afremov walks that line expertly; he perfectly balances color and meaning. The paintings arrived today and they are nothing short of stunning! Will be recommending to everyone I meet!

Querido Leonid: Hace años que descubrí sus obras vagando por Internet i desde el primer momento quedé maravillada con su estilo y maestría. El sentimiento que me transmiten sus obras es de la paz más absoluta e incluso soy capaz de oler la humedad y el verdor de sus paisajes. Soy aficionada a la pintura y mi primera exposición la haré en Setiembre 2105. Hasta hoy no había leído su biografía. Quería conocer un poco su historia, ya que he aprendido mucho imitando humildemente sus obras y he pensado que se lo debía. Tras leer su complicado paso por la vida, debido a una injusta e incomprensible xenofobia, he sentido el impulso de dejarle un mensaje de apoyo, de gratitud y de admiración, por haber conseguido llegar tan lejos a pesar de la injusticia del mundo. Le estoy absolutamente agradecida y le sigo con todo amor y atención. Gracias por esa lección de vida y superación. Abrazo.
