About the Artist

The artist Leonid Afremov was born in city of Vitebsk, Belarus in 1955 - the same town where Marc Chagall was born.

Afremov graduated from Vitebsk Art School in 1978. The school was founded by Marc Chagall in 1921. Along with Malevich and Kandinsky, Afremov is one of the elite members of the famous Vitebsk Art School.

Afremov was building up his experience by painting a lot with oil and participating in various exhibitions. 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 his paintings positive and joyous. Afremov is a convinced optimist and this can easily be seen in his creative artworks. His paintings make viewers feel lighter and more positive.

Afremov's personality reflects his unusual technique which was developed and perfected over many years of hard work. An artistic style that is unique and easily recognized, Leonid uses a palette-knife instead of regular brushes to put paint on canvas. The palette-knife is intended to be used for cleaning old paint from canvas and it is very rare that any artist ventures to use it as an instrument in painting together with a brush. It is even more rare that any artist uses it as his or her only instrument.

Working with palette-knife gives fantastic possibilities, but it is also fantastically difficult to master. It took 10 years for Afremov to build his palette-knife handling skill to the level that it is now, and the work is far from complete. His painting technique is accepted by specialists to be completely unique and not capable of being copied.

Afremov enjoys traveling. Traveling fills out his soul with all the energy he needs to create fabulous art and he now lives on a beautiful side of the Atlantic Ocean in Florida...a lovely place with all its beauty of nature encourages him to create, create, and create...
