about this painting:
Paris is the city of romance and arts that keeps amazing us each time our feet touch its history-soaked ground – or rather our eyes touch one of Leonid Afremov canvasses depicting this marvelous city. It’s fascinating how a skillful use of color and light can turn a usual street scene into something so special and meaningful. Without trying to make his works look realistic, the artist was capable of capturing the unique atmosphere of Paris in the vivid mixture of colors that reveal more than any architectural details. Once again, we’re setting off on a trip to France guided by Afremov’s imagination!
The beauty of the moment
Just another night in a strange city, just another wet sidewalk, just another café with hospitably lit windows… We see that a lot in our life, but we rarely have time to stop and simply admire the subtle beauty of small things. This painting gives us a chance to reconnect with our inner artist and see the world with new eyes. Applying saturated shades of blue, crimson and orange with speckles of red, violet and green here and there, the artist creates a very peculiar scene amidst the autumn Paris. There are no clear outlines, even the lonely silhouettes standing in front of the café seem to be rain-washed and surreal. Using large irregular strokes and layered texture, Afremov expresses the sense of shape through sheer color. We can’t really distinguish the massive of the building from the sidewalk, they seem to create one iridescent background with pale ghosts of windows gasping drowsily into the night. This misty charm makes the painting particularly intimate and captivating. One can definitely call it a prominent sample of abstract art.
