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.

I have just received the first of 3 paintings for my new home in southern Spain. Wonderful art in stunning colour that will enhance Andalucian style living.

Received today! We are in shock at how beautiful it is. City by the Lake, can anyone tell me what county or city inspired it? Thank you!

I recently ordered 3 paintings from Colorful Night, Fiesta of Birches, and Forest Stream. My order arrived in about 3 weeks (2 paintings were specifically requested sizes purchased during a special offer period) and all 3 are extremely vibrant and colorful palette knife paintings that I am proud to display in my home. I would describe the style of my 3 paintings as abstract landscapes, and I love the style. I must also mention the wonderful customer service. When I received Forest Stream, I realized it was not the correct painting that I had ordered (there are 2 paintings entitled Forest Stream), but they promptly made things right, going above and beyond what I had expected. Thank you for that, and thank you, Leonid Afremov, for allowing us the opportunity to afford and own these visually striking works of art. I will definitely be ordering again.
