about this painting:


Urban beauty

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.

Charming Gibraltar

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:

  • Gibraltar is a British territory although it used to be part of Spain in the past.
  • It witnessed many important ship battles and served as a key base for the British Royal Navy.
  • The highest mountain on the peninsula is the Rock of Gibraltar that rises 1,400 feet above the ground.
  • One of the greatest tourist attractions of Gibraltar is St. Michael’s Cave with its beautiful formations and underground lake.
  • Gibraltar has a diverse national culture comprising British, Spanish and Genoese influences.
  • It is the only place in Europe where you can see a unique ape breed called Barbary macaque.
  • John Lennon and Yoko Ono got married in Gibraltar.

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!

I bought Misty Mood a few weeks ago, and it's the first painting I have ever bought, which is saying a lot for a 30+ year old. I absolutely adore the colors and the calmness of the painting, but I love the over all style.

We just received our latest additions to the LARGEST collection of Leonid Afremov's masterpieces on the East Coast: Corsican Sunset and two custom matched pieces titled Oriental Dreams. GLORIOUS! Leonid's art is so amazingly expressive creating different --but always happy--moods. The Oriental Dreams look dreamy in our bedroom (where they join 4 other Afremov masterpieces). The Corsican Sunset is a perfect addition to our downstairs gallery, where it joins and complements our sea and sky collection. Of course, the ones that we see most and most often are in the family room. EIGHT amazingly vivid, inspiring beauties transport you into a world of sun and light and movement and color. So happy! Every time we look up we discover something new hidden in the palette strokes. Different perspective and an awe inspiring art. Thank you all for bringing so much beauty into our lives! Boris and David are the best-bar none--in customer service. They truly go out of their way to exceed all expectations. Bless you all!!!
