about this painting:
LOS ANGELES 1930
An insight into history
Leonid Afremov’s paintings are, no doubt, link all modern and timely, but this artist never misses the opportunity to travel through time. His history-themed and vintage works convey the atmosphere of bygone epochs in a very precise way - it is like looking out the window to the past! Just a little bit of imagination, and you can see the common and familiar sights in a new light, with people wearing unusual clothes and retro-cars rolling along narrow streets. This is a painting you do not want to miss!
Los Angeles as never seen before
1930 is a controversial year in history. Sure, we are not going to bore you with a lecture on history of the Great Depression or even the Hollywood Golden Age. What we want to say is that this is the time when everything changed rapidly: all modern home décor, new outfits, unusual pastimes, etc. No one knows what is going to be in vogue tomorrow, no one knows what the next week is going to bring – joy or disappointment. So is there any point in worrying about all this? Capre diem, seize the moment – there is no better day than today! Besides, have you ever seen Los Angeles so peaceful and quiet? History and contemporaneity depict two completely different pictures of this city!
How to highlight the painting in the interior
Sure, all modern IKEA posters are also a good way to decorate the interior, but if you are looking for something deeper, something more artistic and personal, you should resort to oil paintings. The only thing to take care of is providing the appropriate surroundings for tha artwork – it will do the rest by itself:
1. Paintings like this fall into the category of “intellectual art” – i.e. thought-provoking and significant, so the usually look wonderful in sitting rooms or libraries.
2. A couple of vintage details will develop the theme of history and retro, so the whole interior will benefit from them enormously.
3. It will suit any style and taste, but it is not recommended to hand this painting on a colorful wall that will compete with its wide palette.
As usual, Leonid Afremov proves himself to be a great and observant time traveler who knows how to convey the mod and spirit of the passing eras. Expand your horizons discovering new worlds of the paintings made by this artist!
