about this painting:
Importance of atmosphere
Why is it so important – to have a right background for inspiration and for creation of talented work of art? Looking at the Afremov’s painting, we understand that the harbor is especially lovely when such beautiful town is seen behind it. Being influenced by the atmosphere around, we create different pieces of art in art deco interior, among the baroque luxury or modern minimalism. Link Art deco furniture is able to set certain mood and the right ideas may occur to you at once. In this respect, one should not diminish the role of the surrounding upon creativity.
It is obvious, for instance, that art deco style has a great influence on popular culture: design, advertising, fashion, architecture(in the construction of theaters, libraries, subways and etc.). Many experts say that it is necessary to reconsider the boundaries of this phenomenon in the artistic culture.
Influence of modern art
Leonid Afremov creates his paintings in the style of Impressionism. Impressionism, as well as art deco, can be characterized as modern art movements, so we should look at his artworks understanding the background of the artist’s development. The preferences of the painter are obvious and you can see them in his works.
The attributes of art deco style:
· Colors have a tendency to be bright and high contrast, which is so close to Afremov artwork.
· Deco accentuates geometric forms such as trapezoids, spheres, rectangles, zigzags and etc.
· The elements are regularly arranged in symmetrical patterns.
· In the modern style materials are used, for instance, aluminum, chrome, plastics, stainless steel. Stained glass, inlays, and lacquer are also common.
Why we travel
We observe the details of texture and fix changes of volumes and spaces. We try to overcome the barriers and pierce the walls through the openings. We try to reach the distant places looking through the bars and windows. We climb the dome of Florence Cathedral using the narrow stairs, then we feel fear on the balcony of the interior hardly make our way over the space of double curvature between the outer and inner dome, and finally get to the gallery, hovering over city. People fly thousands of miles and pay a lot of money in order to get similar experience. Millions of people eagerly "devour" spatial delights in the skyscrapers of Hong Kong, Cappadocia caves or remnants of the Roman Forum. The whole countries earn their living with tourism, selling spatial feelings to insatiable tourists. Lovely harbor is a destination for some people, but it is also a point of departure – to all those wonderful places we dream about, where we can get extraordinary experience.
