about this painting:


The genre of klezmer

Some people say that art is dead; however, klzemer shows us that any art can always rise from the dead. Klezmer is a musical genre that was created by the Ashkenazi Jews of Eastern Europe. The roots of the genre and its history are still vague and need further studying, but we know that the art of klezmer, once almost dead as a genre, became popular in the 20th century and is now thought to be one of the symbols of the Jewish nation. Leonid Afremov, who himself is Jewish, looks at the musical tradition of klezmer as a source of inspiration that encourages him to create new exquisite canvases. This painting is one of such canvases and it shows us both Leonid Afemov’s talent and interest in the culture of his nation.

Interweaving any borders

Some people say that contemporary art is just a kind of imitation and there are no true artists left in the world. Leonid Afremov disagrees with this opinion and tries to create paintings that are not just a repetition of what has already been painted by the great masters of the past; he tries to represent reality in a new fashion, as it is seen by a modern man of the 20th and 21st centuries. This painting is a good example of an artwork that shows us this aspiration. The painting depicts animals, and yet it is not animalistic, yet neither is it a painting of another genre. The canvas is neither serious nor light, neither for children nor for adults, but for everybody who appreciates art, especially when it goes beyond any borders. The cats dressed in Jewish national costumes and playing klezmer encourage us to use our imagination and become co-creators of this painting by trying to comprehend its meaning. The painting, where we see modern instruments and traditional clothes, provides us with the image of a Jewish man that never belongs only to the past or the present, but combines his vivid modernity with the ancient traditions of his nation.

Who should buy the painting?

This excellent painting by Leonid Afremov is worth buying for everybody who is interested in modern art. However, there are some categories of people who will find this canvas especially interesting:

  • If you like music, this painting will make you hear merry klezmer tunes.

  • If you are a Jew, this painting is likely to fit your style.

  • Children may find the depiction of cats playing music lovely.

At any rate, he, who possesses this painting, can be sure that it will often attract his and other people’s attention.

I purchased 2 different works of art from Leonid Afremov. I am in awe of his art work daily. When the sun rises at my home, I can see it in his Landscape piece on my wall. Then again when the sun is setting outside my home, his landscape does the same. Somehow, the painting matches the synergy and liveliness of the outdoors each day. I am a proud owner of his art and so fortunate to have come across him and his work. Thank you, Leonid!

I have read a lot lately about Mr Afremov's marketing and his business. I'm not sure how he can keep up with orders and produce paintings every day when he has a potential customer base of hundreds of millions of people worldwide. However, in saying that, I placed my order for the above painting in early March. It took about 3-4 weeks to ship (which seemed acceptable) and arrived promptly from Mexico within a few days, which seemed fast. The painting quality looks comparable with the picture online, and generally I am very satisfied with the production quality. I'm aware it is a relatively quick and easy-to-paint artwork; but overall, I'm happy and would even buy another.

Walked into a print and frame shop and was captured by a picture that had just been framed. The owner thought it came from America! Wrote down the artists name to google and here I am wondering what I shall purchase. Smitten from the first time I saw your work.....
