Okay, I admit it… I’m officially obsessed with Leonid Afremov. I mean look at him:
(Yes, he wears sweet shirts like that all the time).
I actually just spent the past hour going through every single painting of his. For those who don’t know who Leonid Afremov, he is Russian-Israeli artist who works daily with a palette knife and oils. His paintings are very unique from theory artists because of the palette knife and bright colors in his paintings. Leonid Afremov dealt with a lot of hate because he was Russian and Jewish. He moved to the United States in 2002 and was introduced to Ebay. He sold his paintings for hundreds and even thousands of dollars. Now he has launched his own sight and sells his prints and original paintings. If you want to see more of his paintings click here for his website.
Listed below are some of my favorites.

The Gateway to Amsterdam
Wedding Under the Rain
Cafe in Paris
The Sun of Sicily
When Dreams Come True
Sunset by the Lake
Dance Under The Rain
Waltz (My personal favorite)
And like any other person… I got a little bit of fashion inspiration from Afremov. Here are some of the summer outfits I have created through Polyvore.
