about this painting:


Charm of a never-sleeping city

If you are already acquainted with some works by Mr. Afremov, you probably know how deeply in love he is with rainy landscapes and night scenes. Perhaps it is just a unique gift – few artists are able to find and convey this subtle beauty in such an exquisite manner.

Walking alone under an umbrella, watching at lights reflected in puddles, thinking about something very personal… Isn’t it the kind of solitude that a crowded city can offer only when it’s raining?

A modern Mona Lisa?

Rainy weatheris probably the best time to think your life over. It suggests meditating and reassessing. That’s what this woman appears to be doing. However, can anyone tell for sure what Leonid meant to say in this picture? What is so enigmatic about this woman and the rainy cityscape?

This lady must be beautiful; her dress is elegant and shoes are stylish. Perhaps she is on her way home from a party… Why is she alone? Is she sad or just thoughtful?Like Mona Lisa, she provokes a lot of questions. You can make up your own story as an answer or choose the one you like most:

  • The lady is of a very romantic disposition. She loves rain, and now she has split the party to enjoy fresh air and unusual peace of the hustling city.
  • She got in a row with her beloved one and decided to go home alone. A taxi? Well, who cares for a taxi when the mood and the weather encourage being completely alone!
  • This woman is just a passer-by caught by the artist accidentally. The main character is the city that is so quiet and peaceful now. Rain has changed its look so dramatically that you feel like wandering along absolutely unknown streets in a faraway land. As for the lady – well, she is like a dream, a sweet but elusive dream.

What isso special about the painter’s style?

Leonid’s style is remarkable in many aspects, and here are some of them:

  1. Vivid colors and expressive strokes. He is extremely careful about every movement his brush makes.
  2. The play of light and shadow highlights every detail very thoroughly. You can find something new every time you look at the picture.

This painting is one of the most thought-provoking we’ve seen, and we hope you will find it meaningful as well. That would be the best reward for the artist.

My husband and I saw Leonid Afremov's art while on a cruise in the Caribbean. We fell in love, but thought to own a piece was unattainable. A year and half later, we finally found him on the internet and purchased our first painting in Spring 2016. We have since waited for his wonderful deals and purchased five more. We are running out of walls to hang the artwork, but have been pleased with every piece. We paid the extra for the gallery stretch and it is worth every dollar. One painting even arrived without being stretched, and after contacting Boris, the team took care of everything from shipping back to stretching to delivering once more. Thank you Mr Afremov for sharing your God given gift with the world. We are proud to display each piece with love.

Leonid, I have been admiring your art since high school. I recently purchased one of your paintings for my newlywed sister because I couldn't think of a more special gift for her. The painting is more gorgeous and stunning than I could have ever imagined. Thank you so much brightening the world with your wonderful artistry.

I absolutely LOVE these paintings! They are so bright and beautiful. I had 4 paintings in my house but unfortunately when we moved 3 were stolen. I only just found out yesterday that the were never delivered with our boxes that the moving company had and there is no way to find them or get them back. It breaks my heart because my very first painting was one of them as well as the one I bought as a gift to myself for getting my masters degree. Hopefully one day I can repurchase them and hang them in my new house. They are outstandingly beautiful and I am so sad that someone stole 3 of mine.
