about this painting:



Human lives nowadays are much safer than it was before. Maybe his is the reason why people star doing extreme sports – to provoke an emission of adrenaline! Here are some of the most popular ones:

  • Zip line
  • Bungee jumping
  • Diving
  • Diving with sharks
  • Restling

People have always loved to challenge themselves and dangerous activities is a good way to do it now, since they do not have to hunt of struggle for survival on a daily basis. Many of these sports now cost a lot but they are really hard to do. Some of them are better to watch than to participate, and one of them is corrida.


What do you know about corrida? This Latin American sport is familiar to anyone because thanks to its staginess it has been shown in hundreds of films and TV programs. Despite being cruel and dangerous, this activity is still alive in many countries as a tradition.

Many artists have been inspired by corrida. For example, A world-renowned artist   Leonid Afremov who painted a dangerous and passionate corrida with a palette knife. Originally, Afremov is from Belorus but in his life he was able to travel a lot and live abroad in such countries as Israel, the USA and Mexico. So, he had to learn about different countries and inevitably adapt. A corrida is a great part of culture of the country where he is living right now.

He enjoys attending these performances because there he can feel the true passion of all the locals who are watching every steps of a man and a bull in the ring. During the corrida, the air seems to be electrified, so intense is the atmosphere and so strong are the emotions.

Afremov transformed his impressions into a painting that can be compared in its beauty and emotionality to a real event. He uses contrasting colors like bloody red and dark brown to illustrate how important and dangerous the moment is. There is a crowd of people in the background, which we cannot see but can guess that they are there.

This painting is incredibly dynamic. When you look at this painting, you are tensely waiting for something tragic to happen. However, we have to believe that this man is a real master and knows what he is doing. This way he will escape death and will be the conqueror in this terrible competition between a man and a bestie.

I purchased "Rains Rustle" in 54x36 and the "Kiss" in 40x30. Absolutely beautiful and stunning on my living room walls. Every person who comes to my home is in awe. Many Thanks Leonid.

I recently purchased and received one of Leonid’s original oil paintings (Spring Emotions). The painting exactly matched the photograph that Leonid had displayed on his online store, down to every last brush stroke. It is absolutely breathtaking and I can’t thank Leonid enough for selling me this masterpiece! The customer service from his sons David and Boris was excellent; they spent considerable time with me on their online chat facility before I bought the painting and made extra effort to make me feel at ease when the delivery of the painting was delayed by an extra week due to drying issues (the original had only just been painted the week before). Living in the UK and with Leonid and his family based in the US / Mexico, it can be a slightly nerve wracking experience taking a leap of faith and buying online, without actually seeing the painting in front of you. Based on my experience, I can whole-heartedly recommend buying from I hope my testimonial encourages a few more people to buy from this wonderful artist! My special thanks to Leonid and his sons.
