Dear friends! My name is Dmitry Afremov, and I have been helping my father Leonid Afremov to bring his amazing art into the world for almost 20 years. I have been managing the official online gallery, social media, and communications, actively helping my father to get wider recognition and stay in touch with his fans. It was the most fascinating journey, and I sincerely hope that the art of my father only brought joy and pleasure to you.
Unfortunately, every journey comes to its end. My father passed away ten months ago. It was a tremendous loss for our family and for many people who know and love his paintings. No words can possibly describe that.
Everybody who knew him also knows that Leonid Afremov was an extremely inspired and hard-working person. His art was never a business or a career to him. No, making art for my father was as natural as breathing. He kept creating new works until his last day.
After he passed away, our family was left with a large private collection of his favorite paintings, both original oil canvases and recreations. Some of them that he gifted to us. They are priceless to us and will never be sold. Part of the canvases my father kept in his studio for inspiration and didn’t want to sell them.
I am assured that my father wouldn’t want us to keep all these paintings for ourselves. On the contrary, he would want us to share these works with the world - let him say his last words as a great master. He put all his soul into his works and believed that the positivity he expresses in his art can make the world better. And I passionately believe that too.
This is what we have decided to do. On our website, you will find the unique artworks created by the artists in different periods of his life. They were never made public before. These items include both original oil paintings and recreations created by the master himself. You can also find studio copies performed by my father’s disciples. You will find the necessary information in the description of every painting. Check it out before placing the order.
I hope you will find something that will touch your soul with its kind and gentle beauty.
Keep safe and hug your loved ones.
