about this painting:


Time travelling

People often find themselves yearning for more alluring and romantic times. They look through any kind of material depicting life in the past and watch a lot of movies produced up until the mid-60s. Designs, lifestyles and even people all seemed very different then. Life seemed rich and bounteous. Ladies looked so gorgeous and sophisticated and men drove those splendid cars! Vintage cars are some of the most cherished attributes of that epoch and the artist Leonid Afremov knows it for sure. This colorful and dreamy retro painting lets you set off for those wonderful times and feel the atmosphere of the roaring 50’s!

The intrigue of the painting

There is nothing more sophisticated than people’s imagination. That’s the reason of writing novels with an open end and making paintings which spawn many questions with no exact answer. The artist uses this trick leaving quite a lot of riddles for us to solve. Whose car is that? Is this a man in an elegant hat smoking cigar who just took his lady to a luxurious restaurant? Or maybe he belongs to local mafia and there is a shootout about to begin?  That could also be a woman dressed to a kill and intending to infatuate all men at the party.  The author emphasizes the intrigue and makes the picture even more mysterious:

·         The events unfold at night. The street is illuminated by a lonely street lamp and car headlights. The lantern reflects in the window making it impossible to see what’s going on there. So, we can onlymake guesses.

·         It’s raining and reflections on the wet asphalt add luminosity and mystery to the scene. The vividness of the picture almost lets you smell therich odor of the rain mixed with the scent of perfume presumably worn by the anonymous driver.

·         Blurred colors and rough strokes play together creating a magical retro atmosphere that takes you back a few decades ago and allows you to feel like a hero of an old novel.

Spruce up your walls!

Although we’re used to seeingvintage cars depicted in a melancholic noir style, the artist breaks down that stereotype and uses his signature colorful manner to capture the glorious spirit of the 50’s. The painting is bright, peaceful and pleasant to look at and you can easily hang it in any room.

Je pensais recevoir une toile originale peinte à la main et j'ai reçu un morceau de plastique photocopié. Je trouve que c'est cher payé pour un bout de toile cirée. Dommage, car le style de peinture me plais.
