This is an original oil on canvas. I use only a palette-knife for painting. I have not used a brush in this painting. I use only natural oil paint and 100% pure cotton canvas. This painting will be available for auction on

Each original oil painting by Leonid Afremov is truly a one-of-a-kind unique piece of art. With his artwork in private and public collections throughout the world, the purchase of an Afremov original is a great investment as his artwork continues to appreciate.

I'm a professional artist. i paint with palette knife with oil on canvas. Art is my life and I paint every single day. it makes me happy to see people enjoying my art. God gave me a gift of being able to paint good and I thank him for that everyday buy painting and having my art affordable to buy. I was born in city of Vitebsk in 1955. Amazingly enough I was born in the same town as Marc Chagall, the famous artist who also founded the Vitebsk Art School along with Malevich & Kandinsky. I graduated from Vitebsk Art School in 1978 and is one of the elite members.

I tried different techniques during my career, but I especially fell in love with painting with oil and pallette-knife. Every artwork is the result of long painting process; every canvas is born during the creative search; every painting is full of my inner world. Each of my paintings brings different moods, colors and emotions. I love to express the beauty, harmony and spirit of this world in my paintings. My heart is completely open to art. Thus, I enjoy creating inspired and beautiful paintings from the bottom of my soul. Each of my artworks reflects my feelings, sensitivity, passion, and the music from my soul. True art is alive and inspired by humanity. I believe that art helps us to be free from aggression and depression.

Currently my art is being collected all over the world. There are many pleased collectors in the USA, Israel, Italy, France, England, Spain, Norway, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and other countries. Presently it is just enough to type my name in an internet search engine to discover the value and magnificence of my Art.
