I have been seeing a lot of Leonid Afremov art postcards at Postcrossing, but this is actually the first that I got to receive one.
The artist Leonid Afremov was born in city of Vitebsk, Belarus in 1955-- the same town where Marc Chagall was born. Leonid Afremov graduated from Vitebsk Art School in 1978. The school was founded by Marc Chagall in 1921. Along with Malevich and Kandinsky, Leonid Afremov is one of the elite members of the famous Vitebsk art school.
I think his artistic style is easily recognized. Leonid uses palette-knife instead of regular brushes to put paint on canvas.
