The Fusion Of Colors In Leonid Afremov’s Nostalgic Oil Paintings

The elegance of the vibrant colors playing together on Russian-Israeli artist Leonid Afremov’s nostalgic oil paintings gives us the opportunity to spend some time in luxurious autumnal cities. His pictures seem to slow down time, letting us enjoy the precious details of these brisk closed cities.

The painter is famous for his unusual, yet advantageous technique: all he uses for his paintings are oils, canvas, and the palette-knife. The brush-free colorful paintings give an astounding edginess to the luminous cities and landscapes.

Leonid Afremov is one of the greatest and best-known modern art impressionists of our time. He is highly respected among art critics and collectors. His beautiful paintings have made their way to private houses and galleries in the USA, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Israel, France, Spain, and many other countries. This is even more admirable knowing that the artist is self-representing and all of his promoting and selling processes are only held on the Internet.

It’s unlikely you’ll see Afremov’s colorful art in live shows, exhibitions, and galleries. However, all the canvas oil paintings are available for viewing and purchasing via eBay and his website.

Afremov's paintings are a new discovery for me. My first impressions - pun intended ;) - are that he combines some of the blocky technique of Cezanne's landscape painting, the vivid color palette of Gauguin, Renoir, Degas, and Van Gogh, and the motion and emotion of Van Gogh and Degas, but with even more vibrancy and a modernist sensibility. The mid-century modern decorative aesthetic also seems to be a strong influence in his works. I like his paintings very much. Since he passed away in August of 2019, I wonder if his works will be displayed more widely in galleries and exhibitions, and gain more widespread attention. Audra's brief article on Afremov is very well written and informative. The photos of Afremov's paintings accompanying her article are stunning.
