about this painting:

Dance of Love

Play with fire

Fascinating and very spectacular performance artist Leonid Afremov captured in his painting entitled Dance of Love. In the canvas we find an image of a girl who stands in one of the ballet poses –

  • her left leg is pulled back
  • her toe is raised up
  • her left arm is also stretched parallel to her waist.

We do not see her right hand although it can be assumed that she has risen it high up but this does not prevent her from keeping a good balance – it seems that she can stand in such a pose, only with one toe resting on the floor, for hours. By the way, the angle between her right and left foot is more than 90 degrees, and its waist, pelvis and back of the thigh form a single semicircle, the left arm is also slightly bent and stretched parallel to this semi-circle. Her plastics and gracefulness can only be envied – not every ballerina will be able to stand in such a position – it takes years to train the body and many do not stand up to constant stress and abandon the classes, this mixture of art and sport. But our character is at the peak of her form and she has still many such performances ahead, which, we are sure, she will perform flawlessly.

Indian mood

As for the colors that Leonid Afremov chose for his canvas, besides the gray and black shades, which are the main colors of the background of the painting and in which the girl herself is depicted, we find several bright orange strokes. They resemble flames and very accurately convey the true flavor of Indian dance, southern emotions and joyful moods. It is this contrast of black and orange that catches your eye when you first look at the painting. But not only first time – this picture will delight its viewers for many years with its amazing colors and genuine emotions. Perhaps looking at it, you will also become interested in Gemi Gemi, the vibrant Indian dance. Dare! After all, you don’t need to be as plastic as our character to dance it.

Thank you so much. I never thought I would be able to afford one of your original paintings let alone 3. Your style has inspired me to start painting again.

I received my painting and absolutely love it! The painting is being mounted and I cannot wait to place it on our living room wall. I read your bio, Leonid and was touched deeply by your story. God bless you and your family!
