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.

Greetings :)
 I'm student of University of Ostrava, specialization of education, art and music. I'm doing seminar work to my art lesson, thema "Contenporary painter". I chose you. Can I send you message with some questions? It would helped me so much. Questions will be about your inspiration for specific paintings etc.

Dear Mr. Afremov,

I just wanted to thank you for both the way you paint and the way you sell your art. I bought a painting of yours (The End of Patience - recreation of an older painting) for my mother's doctor's office. I showed the picture to her and she fell in love with it instantly! Your discounts and sale price has made it possible for me to even approach buying art in the first place. (I could never afford the $3500 price but this one was listed for $139). Thank you for creating beautiful, bright paintings that fill us with hope and thank you for making your art accessible to the public. 

Sincerely grateful,
