about this painting:

Hug of Lust

The flame of passion

Passion can be found in different areas of life. One can be passionate about his or her profession, drawing, dancing, travelling, or other hobbies.

However, there is a kind of passion, which is different from all the others. This feeling can make you forget about food and sleep. It can even make you forget who you are.

Desire is something that everyone wants to experience but also is afraid of. It has nothing to do with a caring and soothing sensation of love. It is a pure madness of wanting to possess someone, which not everyone has power or will to resist.

Realize a dream

Leonid Afremov’s creativity addresses different subjects and themes. Some of his works are dedicated to love: a romantic feeling between people in a couple, but also towards kids or animals, like kittens and puppies. However, some of his paintings discover the world of passion and desire. For example:


This painting is one of many examples dedicated to dancing. No wonder that dancing is always associated with sex and passion. Graceful equilibrated movement of dancers are a real pleasure to watch. In the middle of the canvas, you can see an elegant figure of a young girl in a bright red dress, which is swirling in a dance.


We can see a couple kissing on a bench. The scene of two lovers spending tome together all alone in a lonely alley and enjoying themselves is pretty much of a Hollywood cliché. However, it still looks beautiful romantic, especially made in a special expressive manner of Leonid Afremov.


This painting is quite erotic but leaves some space for imagination. Desire here can be seen in details: the angles of the bodies, the vortex of colors, the expression of the woman’s face…

  • The last canvas in this list is just another attempt to bring passion and lust from real life to the world of art. Lust in this hug can be seen with the naked eye.

A naked woman’s spine is one of the best ways to add sensuality to the painting without being too revealing. Silhouettes of a man and a woman are passionately embracing each other. This seem to be a beginning or an end of a long tiring night full of bright emotions.

Pay attention to the expressiveness of wide untidy strokes of paint on the canvas. They help to add dimension to this artwork.

I received my painting and absolutely love it! The painting is being mounted and I cannot wait to place it on our living room wall. I read your bio, Leonid and was touched deeply by your story. God bless you and your family!

I am back on this site to look for additional pieces. I purchased several recently, not knowing what to expect. I am extremely pleased with the artwork and the customer service. One of the pieces I received (The Three Friends) is just stunning and makes me very happy when it greets me from work at the end of each day. Although I was worried about whether all the colors may be too busy tor me they weren't at all and just add to the effect and beauty. I had an issue with one of the items I received. There was confusion over the title and I received the wrong item. I heard back from the studio in no more than 5 minutes after emailing them with a resolution that exceeded my expectations. Excellent response! I will definitely buy again and hope to find something during this visit. :)

I can not express to you how beautiful Leonid's paintings are in person- no photo online can do them justice (and the photos are amazing!). When I got my order of three paintings, I literally felt like a child opening a present on Christmas morning. They are all beautiful and vibrant, stretched wonderfully, and are the crown jewels of my decor. Thank you Leonid for sharing your gift with the world. I can't wait to add more to my collection.
