about this painting:

THE SPIRIT OF THE DESERT

We are all people

Imagine that one day you meet a person of Arab origin, just like the one depicted on this oil canvas. What will be your first impression? Would you like to run away or get acquainted with the man? His face paints here, the clothes and the horse say that he’s a traveller from afar. Every nationality is characterized by peculiar features of appearance and character. Those, who don’t think this difference makes us so unique, can’t see the beauty hidden in each of us. So when we get accustomed to the usual order of things, we often take fright at changes. However, it doesn’t matter what color your skin is or what country you are from – we’re all equal. Stereotypes ruin our society from inside. Destroy them and look at the world at a new angle!

A foreigner

Don’t you agree that representatives of other cultures are interesting even in terms of outer aspect? Examine closely the painting to see it:

  • Traditional garment of the character consists of a keffiyeh and a thawb. The first is a headwear, which protects from the sun, dust and sand. The second is a long tunic made of cotton. The clothes are white, as this color is the best reflector of light. It helps a lot when you make your way through a hot desert.
  • Then pay attention to the man’s expression – it is intense and serious. You won’t see a smile on the swarthy face. Paints and brushes are used by many artists, but Leonid Afremov is famous for a special technique called palette knife. The surface of the work is covered by a great number of strokes, which differ in size and color. This fabulous ‘ornament’ adorns every part of the canvas: the figure in white, golden trees and bushes, the stallion, etc.
  • The pilgrim has a devoted friend who has walked the road to the end with him – a horse. They stand out against bright foliage of the trees and even look at the same direction. Something’s going to happen in this forest and they stand waiting for it.

This man in white has learnt a lot from life - you can read it in his face. Paints for sale it offers him, he takes with honor.

Testimonials
I received my art not too long ago, and it is beyond gorgeous! The colors are so vibrant and the canvas is so "alive" with the texture, it is absolutely stunning! Even the people in the framing place were gawking at it!! I cannot wait to order my next piece!!!

I think Leonid's Style of painting and talent is amazing. When I first saw his work I fell in love with it. It was less than a year and I've got 6 paintings of my own and I purchased one for my daughter and she loves it just as much as I do. I plan to purchase more as time goes by, thank you for your work, amazing.

I'm from Italy and I ordered the painting "Rainy Wedding" on November 3rd. I received it 5 days ago and...IT'S AMAZING!!! Now I'm wainting for the frame, that is going to be made by an artisan in my town, and next week, finally, the painting will be on my wall! Thank you, Afremov, your art is fantastic! (and your service too!!!)
