about this painting:
NIGHT TIME IN THE CITY
There is something very special about a night city. Not so many people around, dim lights and silence… Maybe quiet steps of a random passerby. Some people love this time of the day because they can spend some time alone and contemplate about their lives. Many great artists and writers preferred this time to create their masterpieces. It seems that the night itself gave them inspiration.
Also, there are those who hate it – for the same reason. They perceive night as a dark time full of some kind of evil magic that tempts people to forget who they are and commit crazy things.
However, it depends on a person what to believe.
It’s not always safe to stroll down the streets at night but at least once you should give it a try. You shouldn’t take your friends or your date with you. Just leave your house when nobody’s watching and go out for a night walk. Enjoy the humid air, which is much cleaner than during the day. You can bring your MP3 player with you or just enjoy the sound of the city. If you live in a really big city, you’ll notice that it’s never quiet. Somebody is crying, or singing or just watching TV on a very loud mode.
On the picture ‘Strip Mall’, Leonid Afremov tried to catch the magic of a lonely night walk. You can see a couple of lonely silhouettes under umbrellas. The lights reflect in the ponds on the road, so that the line between the earth and the sky cannot be seen anymore.
This painting is 90x75 cm in size. A good thing is that on this website you can order any size you prefer. For example, if this painting is too big for a place where you’re going to put it, you can just order 90x30 or less.
The urban area, according to the artist, consists of lights and empty roads that are awaiting to be explored by you. It’s always night on his pictures and almost always raining. You can see for yourself if you check out some of his other paintings:
- Rainy Night
- When The City Sleeps 2
- The Tears of The Fall
- Mysterious Night 2
- City Movement
This choice is understandable. Any city, even not so pretty ones, looks much more beautiful and romantic under the rain.
