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!

The Misty Umbrella painting that my husband ordered for my birthday came last week and it's gorgeous! The colors are vivid and beautiful. I love it so much! Thank you for the wonderful painting. I can't wait to receive Corsica Sunset on December!

Many Thanks To Leonid Afremov.Got a picture of "farewell to angel". My husband ordered for my birthday, it's my old dream. There is no limit to my admiration and delight. The painting decorated our bedroom. I'll order more for the living room and study.

First, the customer service is 5-star rated and deservedly so - they make you feel welcome, respond quickly and it is like corresponding with a dear friend. Thank you. My painting is breathtaking, the water actually shimmers in the light. It was selected from the generous New Year collection Mr. Afremov painted for his fans, because he understands that art is loved and appreciated by all, regardless of income. Thank you so much for the joy the Mountain brings us - it is not only a feast for our eyes, but it is felt deep in our spirits, the peace and tranquility found there in the Mountain.
