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 am very happy with my painting. The price I paid was good and the painting looks lovely. It came well packaged in about 6 weeks (to Australia). The colours and texture make me happy every time I look at it!

Today, October 20th, 2014 I received 3 much anticipated paintings from Leonid, and I must say, they are so beautiful I can't stop looking at them. The colors are so vibrant and the subject matter so well executed. I now have 8 paintings from Leonid. I am addicted!!!! Thank you Leonid for offering original recreations along with the originals. Because they are affordable, I can display several of these gorgeous creations throughout my home. It's amazing how these beautiful paintings cheer up a room. Excuse me now, I have to go admire my new arrivals!!! Gene

Your paintings are a real inspiration to me. I first came across your work on DeviantART and was entranced. As someone who suffers from severe depression, the color and life in your paintings transfers to me when it seems I need it most. keep up the wonderful work I look forward to purchasing many more in the future!
