about this painting:


This Ray painting by Leonid Afremov reflects the artist’s respect and love towards a famous musician. He portraits the pianists at the top of his glory. However, the true fans of Ray Charles know about his struggles at the beginning of his creative career. Afremov’s journey also was not flawless, so it creates a special bond between the two.

Listening to the master

Ray Charles 2 is a painting which, like many other paintings by Leonid Afremov, is filled with a very rich palette of colors. That adds some elated mood to the painting. The fans of the famous musician will be surprised by the phenomenal similarity of the image with the musician. Leonid tried to convey not only the general mood of the moment but the character of the musician, his constant love for life, positive attitude and kind attitude towards people. He is portrayed at his favorite amusement - playing the piano, and we this play was the greatest joy in his life.

This wonderful Ray

Ray Charles never wanted to be famous, but he always wanted to be great. And he succeeded. Frank Sinatra spoke of Charles as of a genius. Elvis Presley, Stevie Wonder and other popular artists considered him a teacher, whose songs defined their musical career.

Ray recorded 70 studio albums, he has a lot of gold records. For his works he received 17 Grammy awards. He himself was surprised at the number of people who gathered at his concerts far beyond America. And it was really so. The blind African-American, father of soul, enjoyed so great popularity many of his not less genial coevals could only dream about. What was his secret? He had just a great talent, multiplied by sincerity and passion for music.

Following the genius life

Let’s highlight the most important and defining moments in the childhood and adolescence of Ray:

  • At the age of 5, he began to become blind. Glaucoma developed, as a result of which the boy completely lost his sight in two years. He also lost his brother and mother at a very young age.
  • Near their house in Greenville was a cafe where musicians often played boogie-woogie. Hardly having heard the familiar melody, the boy abandoned everything and ran to the cafe, where he was taught to play the piano.
  • Sometime after that he moved to Orlando, where hunger, poverty and drugs became his constant companions. For the first time he played in various cafes, then began performing with the band "The Florida Playboys".
  • With experience he has gained confidence and started recording his own songs. His albums made him a popular musician respected and loved across the planet.

Leonid Afremov is a meloman and loves listening to Ray’s music. He always paints his favourite musicians, so purchasing this painting you get the chance to reconnect with the master himself.
