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.

I have never even been very interested in art or artists, until I saw Leonid Afremov's work. and WOW! looking at his pieces opened a floodgate of emotions. You can see his passion in each and every piece. I now have two of his wonderful pallet knife paintings hanging in my home..Happy Sunflowers, and Friends with a Dog. True masterpieces!
