about this painting:


Combining different arts

That piece of fine art link is truly good which overcomes the very nature of the art to which it belongs. Leonid Afremov provides us with plenty of truly delightfulpaintings combining different arts; and here are the main combinations we can find in his artworks:

·                    Painting + music;

·                    Painting + dance;

·                    Painting  + theatre;

·                    Painting + architecture.

This delightful canvas of his combines painting with dance, which makes this artwork truly interesting to look at, especially if we admire dances and cats.

The mission of art

It can be said that art is one of our characteristic as a species, despite the existence of some animals capable of producing sweet sounds, exquisite nests and so on. If we enjoy musical compositions, different pieces of fine art, books, films and the like, we change and obtain some experience that does not exist in reality. Art is therefore ambivalent: it can be dangerous and salutary, evil and good, weakening and strengthening. Whatever kind of art you are interested in, you will always manage to find something fitting your instincts amongst Leonid Afremov’s canvases, and this excellent painting of his is also likely to win your heart.


Looking at this exquisite painting in oil by Leonid Afremov, we see the magical world where cats behave as if they were people. Moreover, they are upper-class, and everything around them is connected with fine art: floors, walls, windows, instruments, their apparels, eventually the very air in the parlour room. In front of us, we can see a musician playing the piano and looking at us, while three pairs of elegant cats are dancing behind him. They muzzles are contended, if we humans are able to read in their eyes. The sounds that are being born under the paws of the cat are filling the whole air with their bright splashes and flashes, and this variegated veil turns this fine picture into a dream, so that we are waiting for awakening, sure that the cats are not real. And yet they are dancing and dancing, for every moment lasts forever when we look at a painting.

I purchased "Misty Café" two weeks ago. I was amazed when it arrived in only that time. Undid it (so well packed) took me ages. I had ordered it mounted on the wooden frame. Absolutely love my picture. So very impressed with the work, I wanted a vibrant/large picture for my wall and am so very pleased. I went to an exhibition in London a few weeks ago where I live and was so disappointed not to have found anything and then by accident discovered Leonid's website. I would not hesitate to recommend this artist and cannot wait to order again.

I have never found myself drawn to art but recently I came across a picture of one of your paintings, Loneliness is Autumn, and was struck by its depth and beauty. It is breathtaking and visually the most alive piece I have ever seen! I am in the middle of the most excruciating time in my life and this painting moves and stirs me in ways art never has before. It literally eases the ache in my life to look at it. I began the search for the name of the painting or artist and finally discovered this sight. What an amazing giftedness you have Mr. Afremov! I hope to own the painting some day.

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!
