about this painting:
STREET OF ILLUSIONS
Let’s say you have been searching for large decorative canvas art for your home. Dozens of very good pictures, hundreds of indifferently good, all right - and here it comes, the painting you’ve been looking for! A romantic lantern-lit alley, rain-washed footpaths, light pouring through the windows… Isn’t it amazing? And isn’t simple? An ordinary cityscape is turned into a magic place where anything wonderful may happen. If you have never noticed it, just take a stroll down your favorite alley in a warm rainy evening and feel this magic by your very skin. This is how this painting charms everyone, encouraging us to be more romantic and receptive to new experiences! This is how we all fall in love with it.
Prepare yourself: wonders are going to begin
Now you know that magic is everywhere? Just around the corner, actually! Every tree and flower, every puddle and drop of rain is a miracle made by nature. If an artist manages to convey it and preserve this magic of little things in large canvas art (which usually is devoted to something really big and imposing), he or she deserves to be called a magician also!
Some would say that illusion is not magic, it won’t last long and will burst like a bubble as soon as reality intervenes with all sorts of nuisance (like the clothes which are sopping wet or the umbrella that decided to get broken at the most inappropriate moment). Well, being pragmatic is good, but sometimes it is not necessary. This picture shows how great it is to let your inner child believe in a fairy tale again.
What is the secret of this large oil painting?
Apart from its special, almost supernatural power, this piece of art is distinguished by some other things:
· It is very optimistic and joyful, so you will enjoy every moment you spend contemplating it.
· There is no aggressiveness in this picture, so it will bring calm and harmony to your interior.
· It will show you that you don’t really need to travel far to find things which can surprise and impress you – they are often a couple of steps away from your house.
We truly hope the magic of Mr. Afremov’s works will open you the charming world of lantern-lit streets and rainy evenings!
