about this painting:


A journey of one talent

Leonid Afremov, a hearty and skilled palette knife artist of modernity, was born in Vitebsk, Belarus. This city located in the northern part of the country raised a young Belarusian artist to become a widely known creator of marvelous pictures. His native Vitebsk was the point of departure in his life and career that led him to other places where the most important events of his life journey occured.

·         It was Ben Gurion, Israel, where his art was underestimated and ignored.

·         It was Boca Raton, Florida, where he was forced to paint only limited themes and subjects for living. There he also sold his first pictures online via eBay that became one of his major sources of income.

·         It was Playa del Carmen and Cancun, Mexico, where he finally found a place to work and rest painting what he wanted.

Despite everything, it was Vitebsk, the city where Vitba flows into the larger Western Dvina, that has always followed the artist in his sweet memories from childhood. It was the crucial place where the man was born, raised up in love and taught how to do canvas painting.

Vitebsk, the place where everything began           

No wonder that Vitebsk, the native city of Leonid Afremov, is depicted on so many of his canvases. The picture is painted in the habitual manner of the artist. Oil paints and palette knife are used to create a patchwork of strokes, layers of texture and a unique feel that is always present in his works. The multicolored palette highlights the recognizable style of the creator.

Vitebsk, the main hero of the story called ‘Where I Grew Up’, appears in the shape of nice small houses standing in a line along the street. In the background, viewers may notice a castle-like building hidden behind the houses and a colorful autumn park. It’s early fall. The trees demonstrate a rich variety of multicolored leaves on their branches. The sky is still summer-like blue and clear after slight rain. The road has turned into a mirror that reflects the whole color palette of the nature and urban area. There are no people in the street. It seems that Leonid Afremov tried to stay on his own with his native city in order to remember those happy days spent together many years ago.

Colorful nostalgia

This beautiful picture is a cluster of warm tones laid on the canvas with great love and care. They symbolize the pleasant and warm feelings of nostalgia connected with the years of childhood, youth, joy and happiness. These memories stay with us forever. And no matter where he will be tomorrow, Vitebsk will always take a special place in the heart of Leonid Afremov and his painting gallery where you can buy this picture online.

I received my painting yesterday and I can't stop looking at it. To think it has come all the way from Mexico to South Africa is amazing. I fell in love with the beautiful, vivid colours of your paintings from the moment I saw the first one and could never imagine that I would be able to afford one of them. Now I need to save up to get it framed!
