about this painting:


Modern canvas art by Leonid Afremov

With all its extraordinary and inventive ways of expression, contemporary art still has a place for hearty, sincere and very sensitive works. Cityscapes by Leonid Afremov are the roof of this statement. His main goal is to capture the surrounding world in bright, happy colors, to show the striking beauty hidden in the smallest things, the beauty we often pass by without noticing. Despite the obviously unrealistic methods of depiction, this focus creates an illusion of reality. Modern canvas art prints and paintings by Leonid Afremov excellently depict urbanization, the way technological progress and our diverse activities change our life, but at the same time they are very emotional and poetic. Viewers can examine the matrix of collors, images and details on the canvas for hours and hours discovering new associations and meanings. What about you?

The soul of the rainy city

Leonid Afremov, being one of the most significant modern artists, tries to combine extraordinary modernity and good tradition in his paintings. His cityscapes depict big cities and small towns with their unique look and rhythm. Instead of chasing hyperrealistic images, their accurate detalization, the artist mainly focuses on the entire feel of the painted picture. Every detail we observe on the canvas looks subtle and harmonizes with the rest of the painting, its palette and general style.

  • Colorful signs, window illuminations and their reflection on the wet pavement, flowers on the window-ledges echo each other creating a beautiful and romantic ambience of rain.
  • The combination of vivid multicolored strokes and strict greyish tones creates a balance of emotion. City life continues its flow despite the bad weather.
  • The lights of the shop windows create a marvelous mosaic on the sidewalk.


This heavy shower is like an act drop that hides the inner life of the city and gives us vague clues. Who are these strangers hurrying along the street? What are they thinking about? How do they feel being caught in the downpour this beautiful evening?  Our imagination and mood will easily find the answers. Contemporary doesn’t always have to be loud, striking and eccentric. It can also demonstrate immense depth of thought and emotion, make us participants of the scene that see and feel everything as if it was really happening to them. And that’s what makes it worthy and delightful.

We just received 3 additional masterpieces, growing our collection to 20--with 2 more still on the way. Leonid's art and the impact it has on your mood and the atmosphere in your house are just amazing! Every wall adorned with Leonid's beauties literally radiates light and vibrancy, drawing you in. We donated everything we've owned to liberate wall space for our new collection. Once you have a single painting you want more because everything else looks drab and boring in comparison. There is magic and incredible multi-dimensionality in these paintings. Every time you look, something new, different and amazing emerges. It's like a Russian nesting doll:an image within an image, within an image. Might be just imagination, but it's a truly inspiring effect. Thank you Leonid for the beauty of your art. Thanks to the entire team for amazing customer service.
