AFREMOV LANDSCAPES

The Colors of the rain

For centuries, people have searched a reflection of their inner state in the surrounding world. Expressing serenity and rapture through a picture of a sunlit valley covered with flowers or painting dismal stormy landscapes when feeling blue is a common practice among artists. Since this painting genre emerged, the world has changed and so has the landscape itself. The rapid pace of urbanization gave birth to a new type of landscape painting called cityscape. After all, an intricate mixture of street traffic, architecture and city lights can be just as emotional and revealing as views of nature. And in a few minutes you’ll see it with your own eyes.

From small scenes to big art

If you love contemporary art, you probably heard about Leonid Afremov, one of the most famous landscape painting artists in the world. His passion for this particular genre is no coincidence. In his life of work, Afremov has travelled a lot from Western Europe to South America. He visited numerous cities and each left a trace on canvas. Being a very sensitive and imaginative person, Afremov is capable of noticing beauty in simple things and capturing it with his skillful hand. 

While others go by the old school trying to copy magnificent views and memorable showplaces, Leonid indulges in depicting quiet park alleys lined cozily with trees and lanterns, rain-soaked sidewalks mirroring dozens of street lights, nameless old arch bridges lost in reeds – something too unremarkable for most people to even pay attention. The best way to describe his manner is to say that he paints small, but with a big heart. Afremov paintings are spontaneous impressions put into color and shape, magical moments of life caught in their passing. 

This unpretentious approach gives his works a special sense of intimacy. They are simple and understandable to every viewer, yet uniquely charming and easily recognizable at first sight. And most importantly, they radiate positive energy and create a happy, cozy atmosphere in the room where you choose to hang one! Leonid believes that sharing good emotions through art makes the world a better place. And browsing his online gallery, it’s hard to disagree!

The other side of the landscape

What looks like a cheerful splash of motley strokes on the outside, though, takes hours of strenuous work behind the scenes. Based on Impressionist traditions, Leonid Afremov has developed his own painting manner and keeps improving it with every new picture. In a few words, it can be described as following:

  • Mixing a rich palette of vibrant colors to convey the feeling of peace and joy.
  • Using the Impasto technique (applying paint in layers of varied thickness) to create a three-dimensional sense.
  • Painting with a palette knife to achieve versatile creative effects. 

Taken separately, these are just technical aspects that don’t ring any bells to mere mortals. But combined together, they create an irresistible visual and emotional appeal inherent to Afremov landscapes. In the long run, the way we express ourselves with the help of oil and brushes comes down to a set of artistic means, but if you have nothing to say it doesn’t matter how well you paint. 

Afremov’s huge art collection hosts some truly beautiful landscapes of the world painted in different places at different times. Here you’ll find both classic landscapes depicting forests, fields and lakes and contemporary cityscapes taking you on a colorful trip across the globe. They are waiting for their ideal viewer and hope to settle on your wall!

Testimonials
I am back on this site to look for additional pieces. I purchased several recently, not knowing what to expect. I am extremely pleased with the artwork and the customer service. One of the pieces I received (The Three Friends) is just stunning and makes me very happy when it greets me from work at the end of each day. Although I was worried about whether all the colors may be too busy tor me they weren't at all and just add to the effect and beauty. I had an issue with one of the items I received. There was confusion over the title and I received the wrong item. I heard back from the studio in no more than 5 minutes after emailing them with a resolution that exceeded my expectations. Excellent response! I will definitely buy again and hope to find something during this visit. :)

Just received the painting I ordered! I fell in love with it on your website, but when it arrived I was not prepared for what I saw.....It is beyond beautiful! I absolutely love it. It is my first piece of your amazing artwork...it will not be my last! Thank you, thank you, thank you, you are talented!

I am not a big art fan or 'connoisseur' because I much rather like to hang pictures on my wall but I remember that after I saw Afremovs work for the first time I immediately knew that I wanted to have one of his pieces on my wall. I was amazed by how beautiful his paintings are! So today I just received my painting 'Misty Mood' and I am really excited about it! It looks absolutely gorgeous! I can't wait to show it to my wife and pick out a spot together where we can hang it up! I would also like to give a BIG Thank you towards the customer service. They were very helpful and quick with their responses. This will definitely not be the last time I order from you. Thank you very much! - Sander Kaalverink
