Afremov emerged from the art school Vitebsk founded by Chagall in 1921. He discovered in 1990 that only Communist propaganda posters could be sold in Soviet Union, and as such he moved to Israel. He was quickly hired in an advertising agency to paint posters. However, on the eve of a vernissage, vandals enter his studio. The vandals being Orthodox Jews, Leonid Afremov decided to emigrate to the United States, and now resides in Boca Raton in Florida.
