AFREMOV LANDSCAPES

The Colors of the rain

For centuries, people have searched a reflection of their inner state in the surrounding world. Expressing serenity and rapture through a picture of a sunlit valley covered with flowers or painting dismal stormy landscapes when feeling blue is a common practice among artists. Since this painting genre emerged, the world has changed and so has the landscape itself. The rapid pace of urbanization gave birth to a new type of landscape painting called cityscape. After all, an intricate mixture of street traffic, architecture and city lights can be just as emotional and revealing as views of nature. And in a few minutes you’ll see it with your own eyes.

From small scenes to big art

If you love contemporary art, you probably heard about Leonid Afremov, one of the most famous landscape painting artists in the world. His passion for this particular genre is no coincidence. In his life of work, Afremov has travelled a lot from Western Europe to South America. He visited numerous cities and each left a trace on canvas. Being a very sensitive and imaginative person, Afremov is capable of noticing beauty in simple things and capturing it with his skillful hand. 

While others go by the old school trying to copy magnificent views and memorable showplaces, Leonid indulges in depicting quiet park alleys lined cozily with trees and lanterns, rain-soaked sidewalks mirroring dozens of street lights, nameless old arch bridges lost in reeds – something too unremarkable for most people to even pay attention. The best way to describe his manner is to say that he paints small, but with a big heart. Afremov paintings are spontaneous impressions put into color and shape, magical moments of life caught in their passing. 

This unpretentious approach gives his works a special sense of intimacy. They are simple and understandable to every viewer, yet uniquely charming and easily recognizable at first sight. And most importantly, they radiate positive energy and create a happy, cozy atmosphere in the room where you choose to hang one! Leonid believes that sharing good emotions through art makes the world a better place. And browsing his online gallery, it’s hard to disagree!

The other side of the landscape

What looks like a cheerful splash of motley strokes on the outside, though, takes hours of strenuous work behind the scenes. Based on Impressionist traditions, Leonid Afremov has developed his own painting manner and keeps improving it with every new picture. In a few words, it can be described as following:

  • Mixing a rich palette of vibrant colors to convey the feeling of peace and joy.
  • Using the Impasto technique (applying paint in layers of varied thickness) to create a three-dimensional sense.
  • Painting with a palette knife to achieve versatile creative effects. 

Taken separately, these are just technical aspects that don’t ring any bells to mere mortals. But combined together, they create an irresistible visual and emotional appeal inherent to Afremov landscapes. In the long run, the way we express ourselves with the help of oil and brushes comes down to a set of artistic means, but if you have nothing to say it doesn’t matter how well you paint. 

Afremov’s huge art collection hosts some truly beautiful landscapes of the world painted in different places at different times. Here you’ll find both classic landscapes depicting forests, fields and lakes and contemporary cityscapes taking you on a colorful trip across the globe. They are waiting for their ideal viewer and hope to settle on your wall!

Testimonials
My wife and I live in Toronto, this is our second time purchasing art from Leonid. We find all his pieces unique in the way they speak to you. The communication with Leonid is fantastic, he will try to accommodate any special requests. Thank you the whole team for always provides us with a wonderful experience.

A month ago a friend of mine sent me a powerpoint presentation with French philosophical thoughts. I however had only eye for the background... the paintings of an unknown artist. I managed to decipher his name and checked out the website of mr. Afremov. It had been a very long time since I literally gasped for breath when I saw a painting. When I saw "Together in the storm", this feeling of immense joy, admiration that someone can actually paint this (and especially rain!), and gratitude that it didn't cost a fortune, was there again. I received my painting yesterday, beautifully stretched. It has found a safe home in Flanders and a strategic place in my study where I can admire it while working.
