I’m Dmitry Afremov, son of Leonid and director of the site for the last 19 years.


Goodbye great artist Leonid Afremov

Leonid Afremov ®(born 12 July 1955 in Vitebsk, Belarus - Died August 19th 2019 , Playa Del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Mexico) is a Russian–Israeli modern impressionistic artist who works mainly with a palette knife and oils. He developed his own unique technique and style which is unmistakable and cannot be confused with other artists. Afremov is mainly known as being a self-representing artist who promotes and sells his work exclusively over the internet with very little exhibitions and involvement of dealers and galleries.

Before the advancement of online sales and eBay, Afremov was a struggling artist. He was born in Vitebsk, Belarus, and lived there until 1990. Between 1990 and 2002 he lived in Israel, and from 2002 to 2010 in Boca Raton, Florida. Afremov currently resides in the popular resort town Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Mexico, near Cancun. He paints mainly landscape, city scenes, seascapes, flowers and portraits. Most of his work is considered very colorful and politically neutral. Leonid Afremov passed away on August 19th 2019 from cardiac arrest in Playa Del Carmen. More artist works

PARK ALLEY BY THE LAKE — oil painting on canvas.jpeg “PARK ALLEY BY THE LAKE — oil painting on canvas.jpeg”

This autumn Leonid Afremov’s painting Park Alley by the Lake is especially romantic. And all thanks to the paint that the artist used to create the autumn landscape – they are very precisely matched to convey the autumn mood. In the painting, we find such colors as purple, orange, and blue. The most unusual color in the painting is purple. The artist used it to depict the alley on the left of the painting, also in this fabulous forest we find colors such as orange and burgundy. The source of these colors is lanterns that stand along the sidewalk. The lake which is located on the right is painted in blue and turquoise colors. Thanks to these colors, we have an impression that it is still not completely dark but the lights have already been lit to disperse the evening fog. On the other side of the lake, we see several bright lights – perhaps it is evening cafes that lure visitors on this rainy autumn evening. Probably our characters will be pleased to sit over a cup of tea in a cozy atmosphere and chat about different things. Look how romantic these two look under the umbrella in this inclement weather – while walking along the embankment they forgot about everything in the world and think only of each other. They glide smoothly on the wet surface of the sidewalk like skaters on an ice rink – so elegant this pair looks on this rainy autumn evening.More artist works

LION — PALETTE KNIFE Oil Painting On Canvas By Leonid Afremov “LION — PALETTE KNIFE Oil Painting On Canvas By Leonid Afremov”

Of course, we all know that lion is considered the king of animals. The fault is not only his appearance but also the qualities that he possesses – this is strength, endurance, and ruthlessness. But are lions so strong and hardy as we used to think? You can’t say for sure, but you can say with a certain degree of certainty that this is an amazingly beautiful animal that is probably why it is considered the king of animals. Certainly, the main decoration of the lion is its mane. But only males possess it – females lack this decoration. We don’t know exactly why nature still rewards the males with such an adornment, but it definitely arouses respect and reverence. Some people think that since lions belong to the cat family, their habits completely resemble those of a domestic cat. But this is not entirely true – although in part they are right – if we watch how lions wash their cubs, then we will find a certain similarity with how domestic cats lick themselves, but that’s probably all their similarities. These cats differ primarily in size and therefore weigh a lot more – they really pose a real threat to humans, especially if they are hungry, but fortunately the man understood this a long time ago and the lion for him is only a matter of aesthetic pleasure as for the artist Leonid Afremov, who tried to depict this beautiful animal on his lion painting.More artist works

SAILING AWAY — oil painting on canvas “SAILING AWAY — oil painting on canvas”

Probably each of you at least once in your life floated on a boat. In the painting called Sailing Away relating to the series of his famous sailboat paintings Leonid Afremov just suggests you to make such a trip. The painting fascinates with its colors - it has such shades as yellow, orange and gray. The sea stretches to the horizon. It’s just extraordinary. In the centre of the picture we see that the rays of the sun are looking through the clouds. And to the left over the sea we see a huge cloud and the lightning comming from it. It is made in purple tones. All the rest of the sky is done in orange and yellow shades – the shades of the pre-dawn sun. The whole surface of the sea is covered with a light ripple, the consequence of a light breeze blowing a storm cloud into the distance. Closer to the shore the ripples get whiter, as we move farther and farther from the shore, more and more beige shades appear. It is very difficult to describe in words this color. On the horizon, we see the dark green hats of the summer forest. Closer to the center of the picture, they are getting lower and lower - the sea turns into a canal and goes beyond the horizon. And finally in the foreground we see a yacht and a small boat standing at the berth. It seems that the sailors left them for a short while in the hope that the storm will end soon and they can go sailing again. By the sail of the yacht we can determine that the light breeze is blowing. Its left part slightly bends wrapped in a light sea breeze. The right part is straightened out and fully ready for work. The moorage itself is made very clearly, we see distinctly the pillars penetrating into the sea on which it holds. More artist works
