Leonid Afremov

Artist Leonid Afremov was born in the city of Vitebsk, Belarus in 1955. His artistic style is unique and easily recognized. Leonid uses palette-knife 1 instead of regular brushes to put paint on canvas. Working with palette-knife gives fantastic possibilities, but it is also fantastically difficult to master. Look at the paintings of Leonid Afremov. Can you believe that all small details on them were literally carved out from paint with little steel blades? It’s really amazing. His painting technique is accepted by specialists to be completely unique and not capable of being copied. He even does not really need to sign his artwork, it impossible to confuse it with other painters work or to forge.

  1. Palette-knife itself is intended to be used for cleaning old paint from canvas. It is very rare that any artist ventures to use it as an instrument in painting together with a brush, and it is even more rare that any artist uses it as his or her only instrument.
