about this painting:


Light as transfiguring power

There are a lot of good artists who can turn a modern art canvas into a pretty picture. However, there are few of those who can turn into a real piece of art! Leonid Afremov is one of these selected few artists. Every picture painted by him is a sort of revelation. He sheds new light on things and places that are thought to be common and ordinary. Streets and alleys, rainy evenings and autumn parks – everything looks so unearthly beautiful as if it were a magical place! The play of light is one of his preferred vehicles to convey this magic onto his paintings.

The lantern-lit town

As many examples of modern city canvas art show, night life of the city is a fascinating topic. However, it is often simplified. You know these typical pictures of skyscrapers which can be seen nearly everywhere. They are also good, no doubt, but why ignoring other sides of the issue which are no less interesting? For example, let’s take this one:

1.            The charm of a rainy evening leaves you no chance to be untouched by this painting. The city looks like a magical place where all your dreams can come true. You just  have to be ready to see them in every puddle and behind every golden tree.

2.            The street is so enigmatic and mysterious thanks to the improvisation of the lights. The trick of light makes the picture very attractive both in form and content.

3.            The painting is very inspirational. It tells you all sorts of stories which promise an exciting plot and a happy-ending. Feel free to explore them all!

Some tips about the placement

Unlike many other contemporary paintings in oils, this one will become a perfect decoration for every room and suit every taste. It is really impressive and eye-catching, and this is why its placement is unlikely to cause any trouble. However, some hints can come in handy:

·                    The wide palette of the picture prefers a single-color background which will not compete with its vivaciousness.

·                    It will dominate over the interior, so less bright paintings may go amiss when put next to it.

·                    A simple but elegant frame will highlight the picture’s advantages.

As usual, this artwork by Leonid Afremov will bring happiness to its owner. Please do not hesitate to resort to it as your personal source of inspiration.
