about this painting:
Urban life is hectic and stressful yet endlessly beautiful. When the sun goes down and the streets ignite with all colors of the spectrum shining bright and proud against the fathomless night sky, you can’t take your eyes off the scenery that opens in front of you. Every little source of light, every tiny sparkle is repeatedly mirrored and multiplied in the glassy surfaces of the city. The beckoning lights lead you to a shopping district that bubbles with life despite the late hour. What brought you here? Perhaps you want to buy a present for somebody’s birthday? Or warm yourself up with cup of hot coffee on this rainy night? Or maybe you are simply killing time walking among strangers, taking in the happy bustle and clamor of the crowded prospect and admiring its festive illuminations? Vibrant and enigmatic, the cityscape by Leonid Afremov invites you to take a stroll down this beautifully lit street and see what waits for you at the end.
Symphony of paints
Known for his unusual artistic manner, Leonid Afremov uses spectacular oil painting techniques to enrich the scenery with luminous colors and expressive strokes. If you look a bit closer, you’ll notice that the picture is broken into four planes:
- The shiny road speckled with myriads of colorful reflections.
- The bright shop windows glowing hospitably in the dark.
- The brown-shaded walls of upper floors scarcely illuminated by a few burning lanterns.
- The mysterious night sky filled with strange wandering lights.
These planes have a different amount of light, shadow and color. The way they interact with each other forms a certain pattern, an inner rhythm that guides you eye around the canvas gradually revealing the depth of its beauty. The artist doesn’t strive for precise reproduction of every detail. The strokes seem to be applied rather carelessly and even chaotically, clashing with each other without any transition and ignoring the natural outlines of the objects. But this makes the scene even more vivid and emotional.
Light up your wall
This unknown street, probably from some old European town Leonid Afremov visited during one of his trips, radiates warmth and joy. Although the weather isn’t quite shopping-friendly, people in the picture aren’t afraid of getting soaked. They walk lazily from window to window and take their time admiring the displays – and the beauty of the night. This amazing oil painting on canvas will become your unlimited pass to the shopping district that will keep sparkling on your wall for many years!
