It wasn't really "love at first sight". After trying various painting styles & mediums, Leonid Afremov decided it was time to focus mainly on oil painting and palette-knife techniques. Using rich, saturated colors his art is "alive and inspired by humanity".
Each of his works, from night landscapes to ballerina portraits, express his inner world, the joy and passion, harmony and reverie and all of other good feelings that come from painting. What is great is that the artist hands over this magical bouquet of positive sensations to all of his art collectors. His message is this "art helps us to be free from aggression and depression".
Leonid was born in the city of Vitebsk (Belarus) in 1955 and is an elite member of the Vitebsk Art School founded by another Vitebsk native, french-russian artist Marc Chagall. Afremov's paintings are being collected all over the world including USA, Israel, France, England, Spain, Norway, Canada and Australia among other countries.
