about this painting:
THE SOUL OF THE PARK
Contemporary art styles
The history of art is as long and rich as the history of humanity. But ancient people practicing rock painting could hardly imagine the strange form that modern arts would take. All contemporary artists try to distinguish themselves from others. Thus, a lot of extraordinary and innovational styles have appeared on the art stage.
- Money art, the creation of money appliques.
- Book carving, a form of applique where books and a knife are used as the main instruments.
- Aerography, spray painting.
- Body art and body art illusion, painting of human body, etc.
- Postcards creation.
- Manga, the creation of Japanese comics.
- Photorealism, the creation of pictures with uncanny accuracy (photo-like paintings).
- Painting on dirty cars.
- Painting with different parts of human body.
- Painting by light and shades, etc.
Paints and canvas are still widely used among all modern representatives of art, but their techniques, manners and styles have faced radical changes.
Good tradition remains unchanged
The artistic manner of Leonid Afremov doesn’t feature any obvious strange and unordinary traces of modern art trends. The artist is known as a representative of late Impressionist and we can definitely see it in his palette knife works characterized by vivid colors and expressive strokes. However, he is quite constant in his manner and stays attached to his favorite images, palette and style. And this picture is an apparent proof of this statement.
When the park speaks to you
The artist involves a warm and soft palette of colors to depict tenderness, calmness and romanticism of one rainy autumn evening. The rain washed down the flurry of the day and stayed alone with the charming autumn park. The nature changed the tune and bared its beautiful soul to a rainy lullaby. The solitary lantern illuminates the park pavement and the colorful variety of the autumn alley. Red, golden, blue, yellow, violet colors of fairytale-like leaves reflect in the water creating an effect of multicolored mosaics.
A stranger strolling along the park alley under an umbrella is a lose end of the picture. The viewers can only guess who this stranger is, where he or she heads for, what his or her thoughts and mood are; they can imagine their own solitary walk through the rainy park and feel that marvelous ambience of warm early autumn. That person is associated with the soul of the lonely park; the presence of a human being makes it look alive, dynamic, breathing, paddling or even singing a familiar motive in a soft voice.
