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. His work has been greatly influenced by contemporary cityscape painter and modern impressionist Michael Flohr. Afremov graduated from Vitebsk Art School. 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. After having his art gallery vandalized, Leonid moved to the United States. He currently resides in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.
