about this painting:


Cityscape of new generation

In the old times, the artist’s talent was measured by their ability to precisely reproduce the fragment of theworld that attracted their attention. Creating a photographic copy of the actual landscape was the key to painting a generally recognized masterpiece – and some of the century-old paintings displayed in the bestmuseumsof the world obviously deserve this title. But since then the philosophy of art has changed. From the surrounding reality, the focus has shifted to the artist’s imagination that started to dictate its own laws, different for every picture. And Leonid Afremov loves fantasizing! His large paintings are so full of color and light that you want to hang them on your wall immediately – and you can do it without leaving this gallery! Maybe this is exactly the one you’ve been looking for?

The importance of style in painting

During years of painting experiments, Afremov has developed his own style that makes his works unique and easily recognizable. What are some of its traits we can see on this vibrant rainy cityscape?

  • Very saturated paletteallowing the artist to fill the canvas withbright color accents and make the painting emotionally appealing to the viewer.
  • Generous use of light coming from traffic lights, house windows and shiny asphalt surface.
  • Blurred shapes and outlines that add to the overall surealness of the scene.
  • Textural look created by scraping into layers of paint with a palette knife, the main painting instrument of Leonid Afremov.

Combined with the artist’s individual vision, these features work together to create something captivating and thought-provoking, not just another replica of a city view that someone found spectacular enough to depict on the canvas. If you love fine art and have a taste for beautiful pictures, this one will definitely catch your eye with its bright palette and unusual painting technique.

We just received our 36x30 of SICILY — MESSINA and we love it! We had it gallery wrapped and it's already the focal point of the living room. Of course recreations are not reproductions, so it is not identical to the original, but it is beautiful and perfect just as it is. The colors are amazing and bring so much cheerfulness to the room. It's a fun conversation piece since everyone has a different opinion on if it's sunrise or sunset. I placed my order 9/16/15 and the delivery came from Mexico very well packaged on 10/8/15. I'm sure we will be buying more Afremovs soon, and I hope to visit his studio someday!
