about this painting:



Water is an element associated with life, because no living creature can do without it. Its ever-changing nature has always attracted humans, since deeply inside we change as fastly and unpredictably as the water does. Of course, our ancestors didn’t have science back then. But their urge to understand, break into elements and recreate the reality again was the reason the first wave painting was born:

  • Among the first cave paintings we already can encounter the images of rivers or the sea. This was their great supplier of drinking water or food.
  • Later on, when people started to build ships and explore distant lands, water started to obtain its symbolical meaning. Lakes and pound were believed to be portals to other worlds, specifically to the world of the dead, because it was rare to come back home alive. For example, what does the Great Wave painting by Hokusai mean? The struggle between a human and the nature where people are destined to lose.
  • Panta rhei, Heraclitus famous philosophical discovery that can be translated as “everything flows” gave way to perceiving water as something unstable and often deceptive, however,
  • In the Middle Ages, people thought that water had something to do with witchcraft and mystery. Those who believed that they were magicians used water in their rituals.
  • In contemporary art, this element is often connected with the emotional state. For example, in many Hollywood movies a heavy rain or a storm in the sea are great backgrounds for the main character going through an emotional crisis.

Water in Leonid Afremov’s art

Since human spirit is as ever-changing and multifaceted as the water element, it’s understandable why Afremov decides to depict a naked young woman on this canvas. Her hands are above her head, her body tight and slim.

The strokes are so dynamic and expressive that the painting seems 3D. The girl is trying to merge with the wave and become with it an integral whole. Drops of water form a powerful flow of colors, and the painting seems to be sparkling energy. This sensual and positive painting will bring incredibly positive energy into your home.

I have loved this artist for years, and I am absolutely thrilled to finally have one of his paintings proudly hanging on my wall! It took just under a month to receive from the date of purchase. I was not sure what to expect because the price seemed almost too good to be true, but honestly I'm blown away by the final result and I have few critiques. The highly critical observer will find that the painting I received is certainly not identical to the original. The brush strokes are much larger and less detailed, and the paint looks unmixed in places like it's the color straight from the tube. Despite the minor differences from the original, this painting is stunning. It makes a huge statement of lively color to any wall, and looks truly incredible! Thank you!!

Hello Leonid -- I am big fan, this will be the first time I would be buying from you directly, if we can agree. I love the "Paris of My Dreams", but you only have a 30x20. I will need a 72x48, gallery strethed/wrapped. I would also consider a "Giclee" version if you have it, as I am mindful of budget this holiday season. Do you think you can have 72x48 of this painting for me to buy? Sincerely, Virginia Dori vdori@aol.com 1-408-768-8033
