about this painting:



Rest for body and soul

Resort is always associated with an enjoyable pastime; it gives you the most pleasant memories. After all, visiting a resort is a holiday, as well as a change of atmosphere that gives you an opportunity to meet new people and sometimes even start a new life. Leonid Afremov`s abstract painting “Old Vitebsk” depicts a resort located in the Vitebsk region –a place where the author was born. The landscape is depicted with love - after all, that it how we remember our Motherland.

This riverset is unique and different from many other Afremov`s paintings - for example, the artist`s rainy autumn landscapes. However, it is worth noticing that these landscapes also give you the feeling of festivity. However, this painting has something special. Even the feeling of life joy is different! Maybe that’s because of the fact that the author portrayed his native land. In addition, the difference between this painting and other landscapes is in its compositional fullness that creates a feeling of comfort.

Memories near the river

The sky over the houses scintillates with colors - it seems that myriads of butterflies are flying above the town, or that festive confetti has showered these streets from head to toe. Among the variety of abstract painting techniques the author chose a very interesting one – the Impasto technique. The colors nicely reflect in river:  red, yellow, orange, blue, dark blue, purple “lights”. It seems these “lights” are trying to remind us: "time to celebrate life, time to enjoy its beauty!"

There is a feeling that white boats at the berth are inviting the viewer to find a moment and to go to a place where you can rest mentally and physically. Moreover, it is not necessary to go anywhere – you just need to look at the painting, and the picture comes to life:

  • The boats softly sway on water.
  • Somewhere among the houses, we can barely hear pleasant music coming from a small café.
  •  Lively bird songs remind that we should enjoy every moment of life.

Houses are surrounded by greenery – most of the Vitebsk resorts are located in lake or forest areas which creates an ideal atmosphere for quiet, relaxing rest.

Landscape in interior

Note that the painting consists of two parts. Many designers believe that in terms of decoration and originality modular paintings surpass ordinary ones. They perfectly accentuate special features of modern interior. A realistic landscape, divided into segments, can create the so-called "illusion of a window". Such paintings can help you come up with a unique, distinctive style of your interior.

This masterpiece of modern art will surely harmonize a living room or a bedroom – the painting literally radiates warmth and joy. The landscape "Old Vitebsk" is also appropriate for the office: it will charge you with positive emotions without distracting you from the daily work. It will gently remind you that of a quiet, peaceful place - the Kingdom of Tranquility, where you can just relax and think about the eternal.

Our sixth painting, Autumn Canal, arrived today! Glorious! Breathtaking! Beautiful beyond description! The colors lift your mood and the fantastic perspective--a sign of true artistry--draws you deeply in. You actually feel like you are walking under the low branches of golden leaves, down a path by a canal. My eyes filled with tears when I first saw it come out of the box. This amazing piece of art is mine in all it's glory! 7 paintings in our family room and the room actually looks larger and more inviting. We already ordered 11 additional paintings: 3 originals and 8 recreations. Everything we have looks sad and drab in comparison, so it gets donated and we get to live surrounded by this magical beauty. We joke that our home is fast becoming the Northern Virginia branch of the Leonid Afremov gallery. Amazing customer support. Thank you Boris and David. You rock!!! Dr Lani Kass

Thank you so much. I never thought I would be able to afford one of your original paintings let alone 3. Your style has inspired me to start painting again.
