about this painting:


Magic of night

Under the cover of darkness, the world changes beyond recognition. Loud noises and bright colors of the day fade away making room for vague shadows and enigmatic twinkles. Night is the time of small things and half-tones. Every quiet sound, every slight movement, every little source of light grows and swells in the dark as your imagination paints its own magical scenery filled with miraculous transformations. In this large oil painting, we can see night with the eyes of contemporary artist Leonid Afremov. And there is definitely a lot to see here!

Magic of art

This is no ordinary cityscape. Known all over the world for his palette knife art, oil painting and stylized portraits, Afremov uses a special artistic technique called Impasto to make his works more vivid and profound. Let’s see how it works:

  1. The artist applies bright contrasting colors next to each other using a special tool called palette knife instead of a brush.
  2. Paints are laid in quick chunky strokes to achieve a spectacular patchwork appearance.
  3. Combining strokes of different size and shape adds versatility and intricacy to the painting.
  4. While the paint is still wet, you can scrape into it with your palette knife to create layers of texture.
  5. Pressing the knife into the paint at different angles produces various visual effects: dots, ridges, scales etc.

Magic of rain

As evidenced by “Night Lights,” this technique is a great finding. Afremov filled the canvas with bright patches that clash and sparkle in beautifully arranged contrasts. The street is soaked by the rain, but it doesn’t look sullen or unfriendly. The warm glow of the burning lanterns, the vibrancy of the night city and the mesmerizing show of reflections on the wet road captivate our sight and clear our mind of everyday troubles. Rain has dressed the city in iridescent lights that seem to ignite everywhere you look. Amazed by the play of colors on the shiny surfaces of the freshly washed city, rare by-passers stop in their tracks and admire the beauty of this rainy night becoming part of its magical harmony.

If I am honest I would have to admit, never did I dream I would abandon the works of Rei` Munoz. Then I saw Leonid Afremovs' creation 'Alley by the Lake'. I anticipate many, many years of collecting these fine pieces. Livinnia Boschenstein

I really bless the day I discovered Leonid. To date I have only purchased 2 paintings (one this morning!!), but I was blown away by the 'Ballet 3' painting I bought as a surprise birthday gift for my lovely wife. Keep up the fantastic work and I hope to buy many more of your work in future
