The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls. ~~ Pablo Picasso
Leonid Afremov (born July 12, 1955 in Vitebsk, Belarus) is a Russian–Israeli modern impressionistic artist who works mainly with a palette knife and oils.
Afremov likes to view his artwork as politically neutral — no hidden messages, no alternate agenda.
He tries to draw the viewer towards certain feelings rather than telling a story through his work.
While Afremov’s early works are influenced by the masterpieces of older painters, his artwork is very unique and recognizable.
The artist invites us to experience the world of simple beauty which constantly surrounds us.
Leonid’s art easily transports you to other worlds, other times, other ways of thinking and feeling.
And, after all, isn’t that the purpose of Art?
