about this painting:


Valetta and its mysteries

Valetta, an ancient seaport of Malta, is located on the natural bay shore. Featuring a glorious history, the capital city of Malta amazes its guests with wonderful architecture, beautiful seascapes and airiness of a maritime city. Legendary castles, narrow age-old streets and unspeakable atmosphere of ancient mystery will definitely charm its visitors!

The magic of oils

Oil paint, canvas and a palette knife are three faithful friends of Leonid Afremov. They always accompany the artist in his creative activity. They help embody shapeless images, thoughts, emotions and moods; they add colors and tones, lines and volume to them. Revived by the unique technique of the artist, the beautiful city of Valetta appears on canvas in all its tremendous beauty.

None of the contemporary innovative approaches in decorative art can be compared with the specific charm of oil paint. Photoshop and other digital instruments of art seem lifeless and artificial next to it. Paint colors and their hues, different types of strokes and lines, tiny strokes and subtle accents fill a painting with life, feeling and meaning.

Dreams and memories

The painting ‘The City of Valetta’ has its own story to be told. Or rather ‘whispered’ because of its delicate shades and calm evening ambience of solitude and intimacy. Like a lullaby, it enswathes viewers with nice, pleasant and cozy feelings. It reminds us about:

  • The first dates spent on the romantic river bank.
  • Endless promenades along the seashore under the night starry sky.
  • The rain of stars at the end of one warm August.
  • Affectionate embrace and square talks about anything and everything.

The evening light of the city is reflected in the water mirror. Lonely boats are rolling gently with the come and go of quiet waves. The quay is completely deserted. It seems that the author leaves his viewers alone with their memories, dreams and feelings.

Ancient buildings loom above the city of Valetta in the moonlight. They are like silent guards that attentively observe the life and time rolling on. They saw hundreds of years passing by, thousands of marvelous evenings in Valetta; but each of them seemed inimitable. One of those special evenings was painted by Leonid Afremov and presented as a precious gift to eternity.

Dear Leonid, I can't take my eyes of your paintings these days. Colours, your style, and the "simple" perfection in the paintings are just amazing. Even the melancholy is in life-colours and I love that. I am a jigsaw puzzle fan. I really think your paintings are one of the most suitable ones for a jigsaw puzzle, and this would spread your work to another collection of people on the World. Please consider to introduce your work to jigsaw puzzle companies like Educa, Art.. That would be so fun to make the puzzles of your work too! I am looking forward to order some of your masterpieces for my new home in the near future.. Thank you for this beautiful work. Esra Karaca, Istanbul

Дорогой и любимый художник Афремов! Я обожаю Ваши картины, я живу ими. В них я нашла то, что всегда искала. Я даже полюбила дождь, осень, городские пейзажи, вижу красоту там, где раньше ее не наблюдала. Спасибо Вам за то, что Вы сделали кусочек прекрасного доступным для простых людей. Мне некуда вешать Ваши картины уже, но я не могу не покупать их, они заряжены необыкновенной энергией, счастьем. Благодаря Вам я в гармонии с миром.
