about this painting:
Northern harbor as the episode of Dutch lifestyle
When a large oil painting link hangs on the wall, it is able to bring the atmosphere you see on the painting to your room. This time we see accurate minimalistic architecture ofnorthern Scandinavian cities. The Dutch say: ”God created Earth for all except us. We build our shores ourselves.” It is safe and beautiful place. They arranged everything nicely. Multicolored houses stand along the shore and look like houses for dolls on the painting of Afremov. This is the northern harbor. Many boats are docked in the harbor.
The country has high population density. Therefore, the architects have different approach to city planning and construction. The Dutch architecture is reasonable. The cities were created around the dams for understandable reasons. Those who can control the harbor and the shore, brings prosperity to this place.The focal points for developmentwere concentrated around dams. That was a beginning of creation of huge cityscape.
Reasonability of the Scandinavian city
Strictdiscipline of urbanism determines all. There is little territory and the city planners face the problem: how to place everything in the city in the most reasonable way. There is special commission that solves what to build in this city and how to plan it. This reasonability is reflected in the image of the city and it is felt via large oil paintings on canvas.
The blue-collar workers have always lived in the port cities. Dutchmake the best of their territory. Social typical living blocks stand side by side with private villas. There are safe zones for children everywhere around. When you buy extra large painting that depicts Scandinavian city, it may seem for you that you are already there.
Water around is a huge benefit but it causes problems
· The capital does not generate energy it needs so much to stay afloat
· The Dutch dream of house with a garden but there is little space and ground in this country
· The local cities do not want to import food and dream of their own products but they need ground to develop agriculture.
Even the most fantastic projects become reasonable and are based on common sense in this country.
Small sizeof Scandinavian citiesis compensated with clever infrastructure.

You can buy the huge painting “Northern Harbor”, created by Afremov and enjoy its modest beauty.
