Leonid Afremov Art Prints

We are an authorised seller of prints by Leonid Afremov. Leonid Afremov 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 immediately recognisable. Based in Mexico, but drawing heavily on his youth and later travels around European cities, his signature style is bold and colourful oil paint application of European scenes such as street scenes from Paris and Amsterdam and rainy Autumnal evenings.

The Art of Leonid Afremov

In the day when most artworks somehow look like the main reason for their existence is to propagate some political ideology or agenda, there is a modern impressionistic artist whose arts reflect nothing but natural beauty, serenity, social injustice, inspiration, motivation, energy, feeling, or human nature.
In our opinion, Leonid Afremov is one of the most underrated artists of this age. Like most other passionate artists, Leonid doesn’t enjoy commercialization of the art much. You will rarely find him in an art exhibition or at an art gallery yet his gorgeous canvas paintings and wall art prints stand testament to his talent.
Leonid is one of the most honest artists that we have ever come across. He doesn’t hide the fact that he designed and made propaganda posters, themed rooms and walls for communist events and holidays. In this day and age, when communist ideology and communist countries are criticized day and night by the mainstream media of all democracies and communist leaders like Kim Jong Un are considered the most evil people, it takes a “man” to confess his past dealings with the communists and how he was involved in propagating their ideology and agenda.
He uses palette-knife instead of regular brushes not as a gimmick to become popular but because he enjoys it and feels that he can paint better, more lively and something different using this technique. He developed this technique by accident and it’s been over a decade that he’s been painting this way and he still thinks that he is far away from being perfect using palette-knife as a painting tool.
Mr. Afremov’s life is full of inspiration and why you should never give up on your dreams and desires. At age 14, he lost one of his kidneys, throughout his youth and half of his middle-age he faced lots of anti-Semitism, later half of his middle-age he struggled to make a living and raise his kids, but he never gave up and proved to be a success and even the greatest hero for a few rookie artists.
We are lucky to be able to offer more 50 great Afremov Wall Art Prints on this site ranging from his classic, vibrantly colourful Russian & Parisian street scenes to Flower Pictures and even some animals.
