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.

Let me just say that the pictures of these paintings do not do them justice. They are beyond beautiful in person. I purchased 3 last year and just purchased my 4th painting and I can't wait to hang it in my office. They are all so beautiful its hard to choose just one. I love the bright colors they are just breathtaking. I plan to purchase more in the future when I get the money and the space in my home to do so.

There was some difficulty initially in receiving the painting as it got lost in transit (through no fault of Leonid). Throughout the process, the communication was brilliant, cannot fault the customer service. I finally received it today and absolute love it - am so pleased!! WELL worth the wait. Thankyou so much!

This is my first original painting.
I used to feel awkward when people asked me who my favourite artist was, because I could not pick one, regardless of the greatness and skill of the artists of all times who I have had the honour to study and whose works I have come to admire. They just did not seem to be able to make me feel something, make my head spin and my heart beat with thrill.
Therefore, I am now proud to state I have finally found an artist whose paintings make me feel alive. Thank you so much, Mr. Leonid Afremov, it is almost as you can read my mind!

Thanks a lot for spreading all these colors and light. I recently purchased one painting for my father and I am hypnotized for the real image.
Doubts during purchase process were always well solved.
Again, thank you.
