about this painting:
The theme of night cities can be rightfully considered central in Leonid Afremov works. Thrilled by the colorful play of city lights, he often depicts urban views at a late rainy hour when there is nothing separating you from the beauty of the surrounding world. Take a quiet walk along this sparkling street, breathe in the fresh air of the Mediterranean and let it take your troubles away while you are admiring the scenery. Revived by the power of modern art, the rain-soaked Gibraltar unfolds before your eyes inviting you to examine its vibrant colors and sophisticated shapes.
This fascinating contemporary painting by Leonid Afremov takes us to one of the most beautiful and mysterious regions of Southern Europe – Gibraltar. Few of us have heard about its amazing nature and turbulent history. Covered with magnificent mountains and opulent forests, this picturesque peninsula has guarded the entrance to the Mediterranean Sea since the foundation of the first settlement on its rocky shores. Here are some little-known facts about Gibraltar that you might find interesting:

Colors of night
To capture the vibrancy of Gibraltar where different cultures and lifestyles sound together as one magnificent symphony, Leonid Afremov used a rich palette of shades and quick splashy strokes. The street glares brightly and proudly, basking in its own splendor. Soaked in the downpour, the road and the sidewalk shine in long stripes of orange, blue and violet merging beautifully on the wet asphalt. A trio of tall lanterns spreads heavy red glow setting the by-standing trees on fire. Looming in the distance, a big neon-lit building displays the bright colors of its shop windows trying to lure a lonely by-passer inside. The inky night sky hangs low over the city threatening to swallow it any second. This vigorous contrast between the glowing shades of red and orange and the cold eerie tints of blue and violet accentuated by strokes of deep black makes the scene very vivid and expressive. You can imagine yourself standing in the corner under the shelter of your umbrella and gazing around in delight. This canvas can be yours! Make your apartment stylish and cozy by decorating it with modern art paintings by Leonid Afremov!
