about this painting:


Magical transformation

At night, the city changes in a miraculous way. Bright colors of the day give way to enigmatic shadows lurking in somber corners and taking quirky shapes born in your imagination. Everything that was clear and distinct in the daylight takes on a new mysterious appearance and reveals its hidden charm visible only at a late hour. Oblivious to the passage of time, you keep watching the play of reflections on the wet asphalt, the bickering of lanterns along the road and the rotation of stars in the black sky until the first beam of the rising sun breaks this wonderful illusion and gets the world back to normal. Fascinated by the beauty of the sleeping city, Leonid Afremov created this lovely cityscape worth of hanging in any modern apartment, including yours.

Harmony of the night

Being a true follower of contemporary art philosophy, the artist didn’t only capture a nice-looking urban view on canvas – he filled it with vibrant colors and subtle emotions. Twinkling with all shades of the spectrum, the rain-soaked street is luminous and festive, its bright reflections playing on the wet asphalt. The burning lampposts spread warm orange glow that makes the by-standing buildings look like golden statuettes. In this whirlpool of colors and lights, we can barely distinguish a lonely silhouette walking down the magnificently illuminated street, lost in the beauty of this rainy night. You can feel the harmony of this peaceful scene washing all over you and leaving you a bit happier than a second ago. Even the stormy sky overhead is full of sudden red, yellow and green flashes igniting in its inky depth.

Thank you for the painting Melody of the Night, which we have ordered in a very large size. It is as beautiful as here in the Internet. Unfortunatelly, our request to put an inscription on the back of it was somehow ignored, despite you saying it could easily be done. That was important for us.. However, we really liked the painting! Stunning!

I received your paintings yesterday. I can't stop admiring how beautiful they are. I'm waiting for another painting that was free because I bought 3. I am planning on purchasing more of the STILL LIFE paintings.

This painting has been in my house for about a year. When I look at it, it takes me to a special place inside my heart. If you could paint "falling in love" it would be this picture. I can stare at it and feel the chill in the air, smell the rain, see the light in the trees, and feel the love blossoming between these two people.
