about this painting:



Unforgettable city

Hardened by the salty breath of the Northern Sea and warmed by thousands of shore lights, Amsterdam is a fascinating city that is impossible to forget. On his numerous trips around the world, Leonid Afremov has often visited Netherlands and Amsterdam in particular. It was love at first sight. From the moment he got off the plane, he knew he would return here once in a while for new impressions and new painting ideas. His bright and imaginative cityscapes inspired by Amsterdam views please the eye with a rich palette of colors and unusual stroke arrangement that smear the line between reality and dream.

Surreal paintings of Amsterdam

The picture takes us to a peaceful city district preparing to fall asleep, lulled by the sounds of night and the quietly swaying water. Everything is painted in vivid colors that merge and clash with each other creating spectacular visual effects. Because of that the scene looks surreal and captivating, as if it emerged from the pages of your favorite fairy tale:

·         The cute funny houses, each of a different color, cuddle together on both sides of the canal. With their colorful walls, tiny roofs and hospitably lit windows, they seem to be made of cardboard for a Thumbelina family rather than built in stone for real people.

·         The arch bridge is dark and enigmatic in the twilight like the spine of a giant sea serpent lurking in the impenetrable stillness of water. Mirroring the street illuminations in beautiful shiny patterns, it makes you wonder what secrets hide in its inky depth.

·         The sky is a patchwork of blue shades and mysterious wandering lights flashing over the roofline. It is stormy and uneasy, ready to burst into rain, but the warmth of the houses makes you feel cozy and safe.

We just received our 36x30 of SICILY — MESSINA and we love it! We had it gallery wrapped and it's already the focal point of the living room. Of course recreations are not reproductions, so it is not identical to the original, but it is beautiful and perfect just as it is. The colors are amazing and bring so much cheerfulness to the room. It's a fun conversation piece since everyone has a different opinion on if it's sunrise or sunset. I placed my order 9/16/15 and the delivery came from Mexico very well packaged on 10/8/15. I'm sure we will be buying more Afremovs soon, and I hope to visit his studio someday!
