They exist beyond our material needs. It’s impossible to touch them or take away. They are inside us. They are things which can’t be bought. When we lose them, we feel devastated. They are:
More than just a tourist attraction
Each nation has a sacred place. For Jewish people it’s The Wailing Wall, to which they turn while praying. Its name appeared during the period of the Roman Empire when the Jews were barred from Jerusalem and were allowed to attend it only on the day of national mourning for the Temples. Through ages The Wailing Wall has been the symbol of hope and faith. Nowadays it’s still a holy site for Jewish prayers and pilgrimage. My grandfather was Jewish, so every year he went to the city and put a note into a crack in the Wall. In fact, these notes have turned into a real tradition. Tourists all around the world write them, asking for health, happiness and love. If I had a chance to write one, I’d ask for peace.
Grandpa’s favorite artist
I’ve already mentioned that sharing your thoughts with public is very important. If you’re a scientist, you should talk about your experiments in the open. If you’re a photographer as me, you should organize an exhibition and invite people without being afraid of critics. If you’re a painter, show your emotions to viewers! Just like Leonid Afremov – a famous Jewish Belarusian artist. My grandpa admired his oil canvases, so when I found the picture of The Wailing Wall in Afremov’s online gallery, I decided to buy it in his memory. This piece of canvas wall art means a lot to me. It shows the importance of Jewish traditions that are held sacred even nowadays.
The power of art
Contemporary wall art on canvas can have great influence on us. The vivid palette Leonid Afremov chose for his oil paintings isn’t accidental. Colorful reflections, bright lights and motley sky you can see in his landscapes and cityscapes create a holiday atmosphere, so you’ll always be in high spirits. The size of each work is indicated in the gallery making it easy to find the one that will suit the room best. If you plan to hang it in the living room, you’d better purchase a piece of large contemporary canvas wall art. Believe me, no matter which of the artist’s pictures you buy, you’ll be perfectly satisfied with your choice! I’m telling you, I’ve never seen anything better than this canvas wall art! Contemporary works by Leonid Afremov won’t leave you indifferent!
