Leonid Afremov / Afremov.comafremov recreation painting

E Oct 29, 2019 Review updated:

Be careful!!!
It didn't take me 2 seconds to start doubting if this was painted by afremov. Not even recreated by himself, as the seller affirms. How much of the recreation was done by the students and how much was done by afremov? I will never know.

The unaligned benches, the unfinished pole and the couple with the dog have an amateur feeling and design.

Be very careful when buying from afremov.com.
They offer a good service and sell very cheap. Tempting.

I have been following afremov for over 8 years. He inspired me to paint from the very beginning. I watched many online classes with him. This is heartbreaking and frustrating.

No. I do not want a refund. This is not about money. This is about art and dignity.

    Hello, you've been scammed like almost all of afremov.com customers. Artist Leonid Afremov passed away last August. Even while he was alive, the Originals sold on afremov.com where not painted by him. Everything is painted at Playa del Carmen offices by any of the 19 artists they have. More experienced artists paint fake Originals and novice artists paint recreations. Scamming business is conducted by the artist's two sons.
