about this painting:



Making the space around more comfortable and beautiful is one of the basic human needs. So, no wonder that art has now became a means to do that and not only a creative space for self-realization.

There are a lot of talented contemporary artists all over the world that have impressive techniques and interesting ideas. Today we are going to give you a couple of examples:

  • Wojciech Babski

This talented artist was born in Poland, however, looking at his works you would never have guessed that they were created in any other place than some colorful and exotic country.

He usually paints women and does it in the simplest way possible to express all of his emotions. He uses lines and basic shades.

  • Aurelio Bruni

Many professional artists say that the most difficult thing to paint is light. However, Aurelio Bruni, an Italian artist, can do it better than anyone in the world. He uses light to create dramatic atmosphere on his canvases, and is often inspired by an Ancient Roman theme.

  • Leonid Afremov

This Belorussian artist enjoys a great popularity not only in his native country but all over the world. He uses oil paint and a palette knife to create bright and textured paintings. On his canvases, you can usually see a wide variety of topics: from portraits to urban sceneries and erotic.


Leonid Afremov has a great admiration towards ballet dancers, because he understands how much hard work they put into their success.

On this canvas, you can see a spinning young dancer that Afremov creates with the help of oil paint and a palette knife with such talent that it is a real work of art. She is, probably, just a student in a ballet academy because she is so young. However, she already got all the necessary skill to perform on stage and, for sure, has acknowledged all the difficulties of the path that she has decided to follow.

She is wearing a light blue dress, which we immediately associate with femininity and innocence. She seems to be enchained by a swirl of bright colors. This expressive background helps to better show the emotions of the young female. Being a classical dancer, she has to be very reserved in showing her emotions, yet, they have to be visible. So, this outburst of colors should be associated with her rebellious and beautiful soul. She is still learning the ability to be able to tell stories just with her body, by graceful movement or intense pause.

We cannot say enough good things about Mr. Afremov's work or the customer service we received! From the minute we placed the order we had communication every step of the way in terms of when the painting would be completed, shipping information and tracking. The bullfight canvas we ordered is even more beautiful in person than online. We had an issue with it when it arrived so we contacted customer service, who promptly called us and walked us through steps to a resolution. They were able to help us and we are very satisfied customers! We would recommend these gorgeous paintings to anyone! They are the perfect addition to any home and the quality and customer service we received cannot be beat! The price was reasonable and the shipping was fast. We cannot thank you all enough for painting thus wonderful masterpiece which is sure to be the talk of every family gathering we have moving forward. Thank you all and we hope to purchase more from you in the future! We have been recommending you to all our family and friends.
