about this painting:
From pure fun to competitive sport
Acrobatics is a spectacular display of flexibility and the twisted body image in this painting proves it!
Considered as a performing art, it was highly appreciated in ancient times. For the public it was the best way of amusement at fairs. Acrobats gathered crowds of people astonished by their abilities. Those back flips and somersaults seemed to be impossible, so the viewers couldn’t take their eyes off the artists during the show. Another challenge of the profession is walking on tightropes. It requires much coordination and physical strength!
Modern acrobats travel with circuses. They wear unusual costumes and make-up to accentuate the idea of their performance. Thereby, acrobatics turns into a separate art form today. What’s more, it’s practiced as a sport too. There are specialized schools that support creative students and teach them properly.
Healing effect of Afremov art
In the 19th century one of the popular themes in fine arts was acrobatics. Among the paintings representing that period are ’Acrobats at the Cirque Fernando (Francisca and Angelina Wartenberg)’ by Pierre Renoir, and Viktor Vasnetsov’s ’Acrobats in a Paris suburb’. Modern artists depict the beauty of body in motion too. Leonid Afremov knows exactly how to paint every curve and meanwhile individualize the image. He attaches particular importance to the emotional ingredient:
• His works trigger good memories and inspire on creativity.
• Motley color palette will change your mood into a positive one.
• Oil canvases by Afremov help to find inner peace and harmony.
This very piece of art isn’t devoid of emotion as well. The girl-acrobat performs an impressive trick – she’s doing a handstand. Balancing on the hands, she manages to twist her body and bend her knees. The girl’s chestnut hair covers her face, so its expression remains a mystery for us. However, the background of the painting clears everything up. Its vivid palette creates a joyful atmosphere, so we imagine ourselves as spectators of a great show. Hundreds of lights illuminate the arena and hundreds of greedy eyes are watching the acrobat’s performance. Not everyone can boast of such balance, quick reaction, discipline and control! If you need an energy boost, hang this picture at your working place. It will intensify not only your efforts but can positively influence on the colleagues entering your office! Encouraged team is a powerful weapon in business! Purchase exciting oil canvases by Leonid Afremov and you’ll always feel cheerful. Now you know what the key to success is – a worthy piece of wall art above you!
