Paintings that reach out to us
Contemporary art gets ever more daring and sophisticated striking us with the variety of forms and meanings. Meanwhile, there is always a place in our heart for simple images and paintings that immediately reach out to us because they are so familiar and touching. One of the people who know the secret of creating such paintings is Leonid Afremov. His works depict scenes that could take place in any town, including yours, with anyone, including you. Have you ever gazed at colorful city lights from the window? Or admired the dance of countless reflections in the rain-washed street? Or roamed an autumn-stricken park falling in love with each tree? Then chances are high you will take a pretty strong liking to Leonid Afremov’s cityscapes. Let’s start with this one!
More than can be seen on the surface
A quiet sunlit seafront. Cozy houses huddling up over the water. They seem to be made of cardboard, with their irregularly cut windows and twin red roofs. Occasional patches of green. A church tower pointing into the clouds. The view is idyllic. But it becomes even more fascinating when you look a bit deeper and notice a lot more of interesting stuff:
· The artist avoids any detail, he doesn’t painstakingly elaborate the architecture of his town. His cityscape is rather sketchy, but it’s incredibly atmospheric.
· The loose, a bit surreal and delightfully childish manner of painting adds a good degree of charm to the composition.
· The two planes, the city and the water, make a lovely duo giving a sense of balance and serenity.
· The abundance of pink and violet hues creates a particularly warm, dreamy ambience reminding us of places left long ago and those we still hope to visit one day.
A vacation for your soul
This adorable urban panorama will immediately romanticize even the dullest room! Moreover, it can act as great art therapy. Whenever you had a bad day at work, or a frustrating talk with someone dear, or even a very painful failure that you can’t seem to deal with, this colorful piece of unknown land will gladly offer you a quiet, peaceful refuge away from everything that bothers you. You can walk down the seaside, sit on the empty pier with your feet in the water, listen to the whisper of waves and voices of seagulls or even knock at one of these countless windows and get invited for a cup of tea. And when you return from this mind trip, calmed and refreshed, your trouble won’t look as hopeless as before!
