About Leonid Afremov Studio -

about this painting:


The intertwined branches of the trees create the arch of the Gothic cathedral, and multi-colored large strokes of this celebration painting made using a palette knife convey the feeling of stained glass, immersing us in an atmosphere of mystery and fairy tale, a world of magic and harmony.

A light, calm, confident figure of a woman walking towards an alluring festive light causes awe. The same sensations convey warm red, orange and gold tones in the picture. There is transition from slightly suffocating thick darkness to light, lightness and airiness. It seems that behind a colorful vault there is a endless blue sky filled with music, cheerful people, loud conversations, laughter and joy of the holiday.

A woman walks under an umbrella, alone, at night, along a deserted alley and at the same time there is no fear and haste in her walk. And why? Because the picture blows urban comfort, giving a feeling of complete security.

However, not everything is obvious in this picture. There is a room for imagination. Who is waiting for this beautiful woman there on a celebration? Only she knows. The author intentionally does not indicate the attributes of the holiday, so that everyone can present their favorite holiday, something that brings him joy.

Afremov is a modern impressionist. The forms are blurred, unclear, but the artist turned this minus of impressionism into a plus. The atmosphere of rain and evening justifies the obscurity of objects, gives the mystery of the story that we see and forms an attitude to the surrounding reality, conveys fleeting impressions, an expectation of joy, the picture has movement and variability. Thus, the author used the most powerful aspects of impressionism to convey his thought. There is no discrepancy between color and form, everything works for the viewer looking at the picture, for the owner of this picture.

A feeling of happiness in the paintings of Leonid Afremov

A special painting technique, an unusual mixture of colors, brightness, and at the same time a subtle combination of warm colors create a sense of harmony, poise and anticipation of hidden approaching joy.

These paintings seem to be able to warm and illuminate even the darkest room on the most cloudy days, like a warm fireplace.

How does the artist manage to convey this feeling of a stained-glass window in the castle, a fireplace in the living room?


  • the center of the picture is made in red and gold tones;
  • the figure of a woman is illuminated in front, as if illuminated by a light in front;
  • all this light, concentrated in the center of the picture, as if surrounded by thick blue colors, creating a feeling of confined space;
  • the upper part of the picture is made of large multi-colored strokes resembling colored glass, limited by a pointed arch from interwoven tree branches.

The painting is undoubtedly one of those works that made the artist Leonid Afremov so popular all around the world.

Just received our custom ordered Wailing Wall Is. it completes our Jerusalem collection and adds the 45th masterpiece to our overall collection. The Jerusalem collections is unique among Leonid’s masterpieces in that it not only brings joy and happiness like all his paintings do, but a true spiritual inspiration. We had the much larger Wailing Wall #1 and when we rearranged our family room furniture we were extatic to find a place to hang another masterpiece. David was fantastic in guiding and advising what would go best and helped order the perfect size. The final result is astounding. Leonid’s art transforms and transports you to a different time and place filled with color and beauty. Every time you look at any of his paintings you’ll discover something new, which somehow eluded your attention. This layering of figures and symbols is what makes the art so unique. Thank you for sharing your gifts and making beauty so accessible. Everyone who visits our house becomes a collector. Positive

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!
