about this painting:


Behind the scenes

Ballet is a sort of art that can’t be understood by everyone. Luckily, Leonid Afremov is one of the people who have an eye for this old aristocratic tradition. Many of his wall paintings here are dedicated to ballet that is probably the trickiest of all dance types. It has grace and subtlety in it, but at the same time incredible strength and will. When we look at the performance, it seems to us that ballerinas are just fluttering around the stage without any effort. We don’t give it a thought that it requires years of training to achieve that degree of precision and artistry. Every move had been repeated hundreds of times before the dancer was ready to do it one last time – a perfect one – for a hall full of viewers. She stumbled and failed and tried it again and again. And now her body just seems to flow like a cloud of white laces and all these applauses are for her...

Per aspera ad astra

However, the heroine of this painting is only making her first steps down the path of a famous ballerina. Her first performance is still waiting ahead. But she dreams of the big stage and is ready to work as hard as she can to conquer it. Look at her, she is just back from the training. Her hands are shaking with fatigue and her feet are bleeding from continuous spinning. She sank to the floor without taking off her ballet skirt and sprawled her trembling legs to enjoy a minute of rest. Perhaps she can’t get a hang of a new move and is frustrated about it. The expression of her face seems to change from sad into dreamy and from tired back into focused. Give her a little break – and she will get up and go back to gym to keep training. And one day she will turn from a clumsy duckling into a beautiful white swan!

The dance of the brush

But what makes this painting so special is the peculiar technique used by the artist. Just take a closer look at the canvas:

·         While the silhouette of the girl is painted primarily in white, the background is a scattering of bright colors that seem to perform their own mesmerizing dance.

·         The paint is applied in quick chunky strokes adding dynamics and expressivity to the portrait even though the girl’s pose is static.

·         The artist didn’t aim to make the image lifelike – it is just an outline, a fleeting memory, more of an impression than a person who gives it – yet we can clearly relate to the heroine and tap into the painting’s mood.

This gentle and inspiring artwork will definitely take a notable place among your wall paintings for living room!

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've just receaved my wonderful Afremov! No words could describe it :) Delivery has been slower than I expected because of a missing VALID TAX ID or DEFERMENT NUMBER (strictly required for international delivery) but, after I added this info, UPS has been real fast (3-4 working days). Just another detail: I missed internation delivery policy, where is specified 50 bucks added to price. No probl, as I receaved a rolled painting instead of a streched one (plus 25 $ for "register today" offer, total 50$). Chat assistence was perfect, such as mail. Very nice job everyone!!
