about this painting:
IN THE OLD CITY
Heart of the city
There are two types of old cities: those with wide straight prospects and those with narrow winding alleys. It all depends on the reason each particular city appeared, but both of these old guys are going to have the heart. The place people would gather and celebrate, full of merchants, artisans and artists in the morning and couples in love in the evening. The central square of the city sometimes says more about people that live here than any guide. If you find it crowded with tourists – you are unlikely to meet any native people and feel the true spirit of the city, but if you are lucky to find it colored with art paintings - you are about to hear most fascinating stories of your journey!
History in art
Arts can reveal more about the city you are visiting:
· For example, prevailing art painting techniques will give you insight into local art evolution.
· If you happen to encounter a unique painting manner - you are likely to be in the city where people remain faithful to their way;
· Canvases painted in a classic style probably mean you are a guest of a conservative community.
One thing you can be sure of - you will find a lot of oil pictures there! So what paintings would you prefer to see?
Imagine a painting technique inspired by Impressionism, execrated by rich dark elements and completed with nicely shaped brush strokes in an unexpectedly vivid manner. A combination of bright colors and a play of texture brings the moment captured in the painting to life. This energy released from the artist’s hand unravels a familiar story. An old but bright memory of a distant evening when you stood under a tree hiding from a sudden rain, watching happy people passing by through the heart of the old city. These are works of artist Leonid Afremov that make you recall even the smell of the wet paving stones. Just one look at the painting – and the story of the old city springs to life before your eyes.
