about this painting:

Metallica Cliff Bur

The rock legend

Leonid Afremov has several paintings dedicated to great people – these are primarily musicians. Before us is one of them. It was painted in the early period of the artist's career. So, we see the legend of rock, the legendary guitarist of Metallica band – Cliff Burton. For the musician’s image, the artist used almost all the colors of the rainbow. The very figure of the guitarist almost merges with the background; it is like a continuation of his clothes. The end of the guitar neck on the right is flooded in white colors. Among the clearest elements of the painting we can name the musician’s face and hands. On the face we see a pretty distinct smile – a clear sign of satisfaction and joy from the playing. The musician's hair uncurls as if the wind is blowing on them and also dissolves in bright background colors. The next clear element of the painting is the right hand of the musician which slides on the strings of his legendary guitar. Painted in yellow, it also fits very well into the overall palette.

Rock will never end

As already mentioned, Cliff Burton is a legend of Metallica and therefore we decided to recall the most interesting facts about this legendary rock band:


  1. At the beginning of the song "Nothing Else Matters" you can hear the fingering on the open first, second, third and sixth strings. Such a compositional solution was due to the fact that its author, James Hetfield, when he started composing the song, held the phone with one hand and talked with his girlfriend. Who would have thought!
  2. To torture the prisoners in the American prison at the base of Guantanamo, the compositions of the Metallica band were often used. The vocalist James Hatfield said in an interview that he did not mind using his music in such a way, "We have been tortured our parents and wives with our music for many years. Why not the Iraqis?"
  3. In 1985, the band was nicknamed Alcoholic for the excessive addiction of the members to alcohol. The fans of the band went to even greater length – T-shirts with Kill 'Em All album sleeve were even released, but instead of a hammer and blood, the sleeve depicted a bottle of vodka and the spilled liquid and instead of the inscription Kill' Em All – Drink 'Em All.

This painting will undoubtedly cause the most positive emotions and will catch the fancy especially of those who love rock music and are a fan of the legendary Metallica band and especially of Burton cliff. It will be another reason to remember your favorite nostalgic music and plunge into those years when you could still see the legendary rock bands on the stages.

I just received "Misty Melody" and was blown away. It is gorgeous! There is an enchanting quality, depth and mystery. The colors are amazing. Every time I look at it, I notice more beauty and detail. I was also delighted with the second painting - a wonderful surprise! This was my first purchase - but not my last. Many thanks!

I'm a retired jazz trombonist. The essence of jazz is improvisation. Improvisation is the ability to look at a thing from a different perspective each time you look at it. That is what the pallet knife wielding Mr. Leonid Afremov does with his recreations. I have the pleasure of waking each morning and looking up the rain swept street of "The Loneliness of Autumn" and wondering where my road may take each day. I wasn't prepared for the blaze of color or the depth of feeling when I tore the boxing open at delivery even though I had looked at the painting on the internet dozens of times before purchasing. It was like seeing and hearing Louis Armstrong in person for the first time after just listening to him on recordings. Some times it even awakens the urge to pick up my horn and blow a few choruses straight at the painting expecting it to blow a chorus or two back at me. The man is a magician.

We received our painting "Melody of the Night" in December and have only just got around to posting this testimonial. We are over the moon with it especially as it was to celebrate being married for 20 years. Every day we get a buzz when looking at it and I am sure we will be buying more in the future.
