about this painting:
TANGO IN RED
ONE OF A KIND ARTIST
Leonid Afremov nowadays is one of the most popular artists in the world. You must have seen his colorful expressive paintings somewhere in the internet, since they attract a lot of attention and enjoy popularity in the internet community.
However, it has not always been like that.
- Afremov had to face a lot of obstacles on his way to fame and success. For many years, he could not sale his paintings in his native country, which is Belarus.
- That and the fact that Soviet government was conducting a rather strict antisemitic police, he had to live the country together with his family and look for happiness somewhere else.
- He lived in Israel and the United States before he finally moved to Mexico where he still resides. Only in the USA he managed to establish himself as an artist.
A possibility to travel gives a huge kick of inspiration, especially when this person is an artist. Hundreds of his canvases were inspired by foreign countries and exotic traditions.
PASSION AS AN ART
Latin America with its incredible nature and happy smiley people has always inspired Afremov. After he visited Argentina, he created many canvases of street dancers and musicians.
Tango is everywhere in Buenos Aires. Couples are dancing on the street and love to be watched by tourists and passer-byes. It was born there, danced by poor immigrants, sailors and workers. This famous dance performed by two dancers in red and black inspire many talented paintings.
For example, on this canvas by Leonid Afremov you can see two tango dancers performing a passionate and agile move. A woman is dressed in a red dress, and her partner is holding her tight. A man is also wearing clothes traditional for this dance. The design of his clothes is not that different from the fashion of the 20s.
It is truly amazing how dynamic this painting is. The artist managed to capture the moment of culmination of the dance. Tango ignites your heart and wakes up all the secret desires. Its sensuality is beyond doubt but it is much more reserved than many other Latin American dances like bachata or rumba.
Afremov uses his favorite tool – a palette knife to create wide strokes. Thanks to the them, the paintings gets more depth and dynamics.
An interesting combination of colors that looks like a little storm of colors represents the soul of the dance as bright and colorful.
