What a genius! It is so sad there are tons of duplicates sold on ebay and similar stores. May be it is not easy to prosecute the manufacturers in China. But isn't it possible to file suit against resellers like ebay and other re-sellers in USA, selling duplicate paintings? Since each hand painting is different from another, may be it cannot be considered as duplication. Any thoughts
I got this Night Amsterdam special ordered for 80 x 32 and ITS JUST BEAUTIFUL with PANORAMIC VIEW aspect in the painting! I only own AFremov paintings through my house and everyone comes by always stare at it and complement. They are exquisite and I will continue to buy more!

Just received " Dance under the Rain. " Just blown away by its beauty. You are a very talented man. It is simply wonderful.
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Thank you for my two beautiful paintings, I can't wait to buy more.
I have been admiring your work for quite some time now and finally was able to order my first piece - my favourite "Alley By the Lake". I just received it yesterday and while I was a little disappointed that the night sky did not take on the purple hues like the original, I was still blown away by the beauty of the piece! You are an amazing artist, Mr. Afremov! I am already deciding on my next piece! :) Thank you, thank you, thank you!
My paintings just arrived less than 30minutes ago and I knew I had to write a testimony. Thank you so much Leonid it is very beautiful. It will be the focal painting inside the house occupying the biggest wall as it is a 90x48 magnificent masterpiece. We have just purchased our very first home three months ago and it is only your painting that we have decided to buy and put inside our humble abode. From my family, thank you so much for sharing your talent! Thank you for your masterpiece it has added warmth in the heart of our home.
My Sister and I purchased RAIN'S RUSTLE for our mom for Mother's day as a surprised. When the painting arrived we were blown away by the colors and how alive the painting was. It was breathtaking and my mom loved it. We are always looking at your gallery and are planning on her next gift for Christmas. If you haven't purchased from this Artist before please do! You will not be disappointed. Thank You Leonid for a beautiful gift!
I love this painting! It looks even more amazing in person than it does in the picture. I have never been to Vitebsk, but I got this painting because it looks exactly like a street corner I passed every day when I was studying in a medieval town in Italy. Shipping took forever since it was international, but it was well worth the wait. I hung it across from my bed so it's the first thing I see when I get up in the morning, and I definitely intend to purchase more of Leonid's paintings.
Just received my second Afremov painting, "Dance Under The Rain" and it is absolutely spectacular! The colors and textures are exceptional, and it is proudly displayed in my living room. Looking forward to my next purchase! Thank you so much for sharing your joy of color, texture, and memorable moments.
I just recieved my three paintings,I am so happy !They are absolutely marvelous,fabulous colors!!! I am huge fan of your work Mr.Leonied,thank you for sharing your art with us !! Obrigado !
I ordered two paintings recently. So happy that those amazing bright artworks now are decorating our house. Thank you so much Maestro Afremov for giving us a part of your talent and soul! (And both paintings arrived very fast , were well-packed, we are very satisfied with customer service too).
Acabo de comprar mi primer pintura! quede enamorada cuando la vi por internet! espero seguir enamorada cuando la reciba! Hermoso trabajo Señor Afremov.
We love ours! It is a little different than the picture of course, but the colors really pop in person! Thanks Leonid.
I ordered "Passion" and am beyond delighted with the purchase. The colors are vibrant, the quality exceptional, and it is stunning to admire. Customer service is outstanding, and responses to inquiries are prompt. As a super happy collector, I have ordered "Dance Under The Rain" for the living room, and then I will begin looking for more wall space! I have to have more!
I have just received my art. Recreation of Loneliness of Autumn. Thank you. It is perfect. It is beautiful, so vibrant. It lights up my lounge. I look forward to when i can buy more of your wonderful work. Great art and great friendly and helpful service. Well wrapped and protected for shipping.
A little while I go I received the painting I ordered: "When Dreams Come True" and it is absolutely beautiful. Seeing it in person cannot compare to the picture. It is already framed and on my wall and every time I look at it I become completely captivated!! I fall in love with it all over again. Leonid Afremov is an amazing artist, his paintings caught my attention the moment I saw them. I'm so happy to have one of them in my home!! I have no complains with the service. They gave me all the appropriate information and details. When I sent a message with a question it was answered swiftly and clearly. The painting was sent in the time frame they told me it would and it arrived exactly on the day they said it would. So I'm really happy with the service in general. I'm already looking into buy another one, It is just so difficult to chose!! Their are so many beautiful painting from where to choose!
I just bought FREEDOM OF AUTUMN PARK, I am so excited! Can't wait to see it next month. You are an awesome artist Sir Leond!
I have been looking at Leonid's paintings for a while online and one day i started buying the ones i really enjoyed. I now have 9 paintings altogether and each one is extremely well done. A large amount of time, effort, and skill goes into each painting this man makes. I have 2 originals and 7 recreations and each one is superb. This artist is extremely good at making super vibrant, very uplifting paintings that I still spend hours staring at when the mood catches me right and i have the time. I would definitely recommend this artist and site to anyone who needs some amazing artwork. I will definitely buy some more work soon enough if i can find more walls!
Just recieved my patient, its stunning. Thank you so much!!
I just received a very large Misty Mood and I'm in heaven. I get lost in it. Your work, Mr. Afremov, brings me all kinds of emotions but all under the umbrella of happiness. Thank you again for sharing your talent with the world. You really are making a difference with it!
No one like them, kindness and fairness at the highest level, try it you will be amazed Boris Afremov great person My respect for all of you...
Leonid, I have been admiring your art since high school. I recently purchased one of your paintings for my newlywed sister because I couldn't think of a more special gift for her. The painting is more gorgeous and stunning than I could have ever imagined. Thank you so much brightening the world with your wonderful artistry.
I've just receaved my wonderful Afremov! No words could describe it :) Delivery has been slower than I expected because of a missing VALID TAX ID or DEFERMENT NUMBER (strictly required for international delivery) but, after I added this info, UPS has been real fast (3-4 working days). Just another detail: I missed internation delivery policy, where is specified 50 bucks added to price. No probl, as I receaved a rolled painting instead of a streched one (plus 25 $ for "register today" offer, total 50$). Chat assistence was perfect, such as mail. Very nice job everyone!!
I adore the art of Leonid Afremov . Fabulous use of colour. I have been looking for a piece of art for my new home and nothing but Afremov will do. Waiting for the day i have saved enough to purchase my first piece. I am sure it will not be my last
Just received my painting. I love, love, love it! I wish I had room for more. Every painting of yours tells a story! Thank you!
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.
I purchased the Eric Clapton portrait oil painting, however, I received a painting that is significantly different from the one that is advertised. The painting I received does not look like Eric Clapton.
Thank you for persistently practicing your extraordinary talents in the face of so much adversity! I am tremendously fortunate that a recreation of WHEN DREAMS COME TRUE adorns the wall above my bed. Absolutely stunning, it is my most prized piece in my well-decorated home. It stirs incredible feelings in me. Additionally, it was bargain priced, especially with the coupon I won playing your puzzle game, and I was pleasantly surprised when it shipped far earlier than the estimated date with free expedited shipping. Also, Inessa’s responses to my inquiries were incredibly prompt and friendly. I can't wait to order more masterpieces by my favorite artist!
I received my painting this evening. I ordered The Rain Princess. I was really hoping it would look like the original but was prepared to be lenient due to the fact that the artist repaints it for you. (Which is pretty cool). However, I was very happy. I've been waiting to give it a prime spot on my wall and it looks so beautiful......autumn is my absolute favorite season and I love this painting.
I am writing a article in class about why we need humanities and i wrote to help with expression i used your beautiful art as a example keep on making amazing art
Je pensais recevoir une toile originale peinte à la main et j'ai reçu un morceau de plastique photocopié. Je trouve que c'est cher payé pour un bout de toile cirée. Dommage, car le style de peinture me plais.
We waited 2 and a half years to find the perfect painting for our feature wall in our house and we finally have it! The 72 x 48 Melody Of The Night perfectly completes our living area. The bright colorful glow of this painting fills the room with beauty and brightness. We are so pleased that we waited an found the perfect piece. Thank you so much, we love it!
Leonid, I have no room left on my walls but if I ever upgrade I'd sure buy many of your works. Spasibo, poradovali glaz!!!!!!!
I bought Loneliness in Autumn last year. I feel like I own an original oil piece even though it is a replica. It is painted with the same care and love as the original. I cannot thanks Mr. Afremov enough for making hand painted oil so beautiful and affordable. I would highly recommend purchasing a piece from this talented man.
I just want to say that the both paintings arrived. I am shocked how beautiful they are. Thank you Leonid. I will purchase another for my mom before she steals one..... :) She loves too.
Love your work - I have four beautiful paintings and just ordered another. They are bright and happy works of art. Thank you for bringing some beauty into my home. Linda Cooley
We had "The End of Patience" just framed and are just enjoing this beautiful work! The quality of the bright blazing colors on the high-quality canvas are admirable. Thank you also for the uncomplicated shipment to Germany. We've become a huge fan of your work!
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! Thank-you!
Dear Leonid, To date my husband and I have purchased over 20 of your paintings. Your work is brilliant and we dearly love it. We are now framing and they will hang all over our home and our office for everyone we know to see. Working with Inessa and Boris has also been a pleasure. Shipping is done very well and quickly where possible. Your prices are extremely reasonable. Blessings to you and your family. May the recognition of your work reach the skies as well as the value of your pieces.
I received the most beautiful works by Leonid Afremov's, the "Wailing Wall". The layering and texturing of the magnificent colors, which are unique to Mr. Afremov's timeless paintings, are breathtaking and capturing. His paintings so gently invite you into their world and graciously allow you to be a participant of its story. I am a follower of his beautiful works. Thank you for sharing your light, Sharon Rising
I'm a commercial property manager and have recently renovated an office building in Dearborn, MI. Mr. Afremov's art is beautifully displayed throughout the building. It was my immense pleasure to select 19 pieces (so far!). We receive a steady flow of compliments and inquiries regarding the paintings. Of course, we sing the praises of afremov.com! Some of my tenants have even purchased their own paintings. Thank you for all of the beautiful pieces you have created for us. I think I may still need one more! I just can't stop.
I was a little leery to be honest, but I ordered anyway and I must say everything went as expected and I have the painting and it is even more beautiful than it was posted on the internet!!! I will definitely be ordering again. It looks amazing on my wall and my daughter said dad if anything happens to you could I have that painting....Now that's a compliment....Thank You!!
This my second painting from Mr. Afremov, When I opened the box and looked at the painting for the 1st time..... I almost cried... tears of joy!!! It is so beautiful!!! Your painting makes me happy. Thank you
Your painting " A STROLL THROUGH AN OCTOBER PARK" is so beautiful! It expresses a deep, cozy feeling that makes me smile. The trees are breathtaking!
I saw your art on deviantart and i felt in love at the same time!! WOW. i want something made by you... i think i'll buy one early
I received Rain's Rustle today (early) and couldn't wait to post. It is perfection in expressing a mood with a visual appeal that crosses time and space. I happened upon and instantly fell in love with this image and searched to find that to my sheer delight I could order a painted copy by Mr. Afremov. I am beyond happy with my painting and will be ordering a companion painting very soon. Thank you sir.
Just received my Alley by the Lake Oil painting on canvas by pallet knife from Leonid Afremov and I'm very happy . Not a 100% copy but very impressive . I uploaded a picture here : http://i215.photobucket.com/albums/cc232/Casey120/Alley%20by%20tloriginalcees2.jpg
I have bought two of your paintings, Mr. Afremov. When I found this gallery, I could not believe it. The painter himself, of those incredibly beautiful, full of life paintings, was selling his paintings at prices I can afford!!! I saw your paintings quite a while ago, and saved them to my computer to use as backgrounds. To think that I could own two is still unbelievable to me!! I have not received them yet, I can't wait!! Thank you!!
I received my painting and absolutely love it! The painting is being mounted and I cannot wait to place it on our living room wall. I read your bio, Leonid and was touched deeply by your story. God bless you and your family!
