Stunning art by Leonid Afremov

This one’s an amazing Oil Painting
.

The artist Leonid Afremov was born in city of Vitebsk, Belarus in 1955– the same town where Marc Chagall was born. Leonid graduated from Vitebsk Art School in 1978. The school was founded by Marc Chagall in 1921.

Along with Malevich and Kandinsky, Leonid Afremov is one of the elite members of the famous Vitebsk art school.

Leonid was building up his experience by painting a lot with oil and participating in various exhibitions. But nevertheless, his talent achieved its real heights only when he moved to Israel in 1990. The scorching southern sun filled with colors and brightness made Leonid’s paintings positive and joyous. The artist himself is a convinced optimist and this can be easily seen in his creative artworks. His paintings make viewers feel lighter and more positive.

Some words on this piece from the artist;

If you would like to purchase a giclée (Limited Edition hand embellished print on canvas and signed by the artist on front and back) please visit [link]. This painting is sold and located in a private collection.

The original painting was created with a painting-knife. I have been developing this technique for many years, and the results can be seen now. Currently my art is being collected all over the world. There are many pleased collectors in USA, Israel, Italy, France, England, Spain, Norway, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and other countries.

Still wondering what giclée is? Please check out this [link] for an explanation.
