Leonid Afremov

Leonid Afremov (born 1955) is a Belarusian painter. His paintings are often vividly-coloured landscapes, cityscapes and figures, and are typically painted using a palette knife and oil paint.

Afremov graduated from Vitebsk Art School, which was founded by Chagall in 1921 and has had many notable patrons including Kazimir Malevich and Wassily Kandinsky. After discovering that only communist propaganda posters would sell in the Soviet Union, Afremov moved to Israel in 1990. Within two weeks, he had found a job in an advertising agency painting billboards, but on the eve of an exhibition, his studio was broken into and vandalised.[1] After having his art gallery vandalized by orthodox Jews, Leonid moved to United States.

He currently resides in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.
