Recreation what is it?

Leonid Afremov Recreations

A recreation is a painted copy of a painting but not 100% identical. The only difference in patterns of strokes which is impossible to repeat in a palette knife style. Each stroke of the knife has a unique shape and signature which makes it impossible to repeat. 

The reacreations were made with the same process and materials as an original painting, oil paint and canvas. First a pencil drawing was made as an outline of the main objects of the compositoon in the painting.  Then a background layer of main colors and objects is placed on the canvas with a larger palette knife. Afterwards the painting was finished in all its details with a smaller palette knife. Leonid employees profesional artists who do the pencil drawings and backround layers for him. Then he himself finished the details of the painting. 

The sides of the painting are painted and its covered with protective varnish. Each recreation is signed by Leonid Afremov himself on front and back and comes with a certificate of authenticity sign by Afremov family member or Studio manager. 

A print or giclee does not have the feel or the texture of a painting.  A recreation feels just like the original painting. You touch it and feel the texture.  A print or giclee will not look the same on the wall as a real hand made painting . 

The image we show online is the image of the master original . the recreation was made based on this image 

Some recreations come in limited editions  and some in open editions. The discription tab in the listing will have all the information about the painting.

We are now the proud owners of 14 (!!!!) of Leonid Afremov's masterpieces. And, no, we don't own a gallery, though our home begins to look like one. Our initial order was the first time ever we ordered art on line and literally fell in love. Our newest installment of 8 masterpieces arrived yesterday and it's simply breath-taking. We bought out Leonid's Jerusalem series--all of it because the paintings are so beautiful a choice was just impossible. So we bought it all!! Sounds crazy, but it's spectacular! What an amazing talent! Leonid recreates everything! Light, air, flowers, stones, air, color, atmosphere--it's all alive and real. I smile every time I look at the pictures. No material possession has ever made me so very happy! These masterpieces literally lift your mood!!! You just can't be sad with so much beauty, color, movement and energy surrounding you. Phenomenal!!! Many thanks to the Master and his two sons, Boris and David. Leonid's remarkable genius is enhanced by his sons' acumen and superb attitude. Customer care and attention are second to none. Truly a pleasure to deal with. Customer satisfaction is job one--and it's for real, not empty words. Immediate, courteous response. Rare quality these days. We have 3 originals coming and are excited to welcome these new additions to our already amazing collection. Meanwhile, we are enjoying the beauty we already have. Trashed every other art work to liberate wall space for Leonid's masterpieces. Do yourself a favor and buy a couple of paintings! On second thought, make yourself real happy and buy a dozen! Such amazing beauty is rarely affordable. This true art is.

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.
