Leonid Afremov (12 July 1955 – 19 August 2019) was a Russian modern impressionistic artist who worked with palette knives and oils.[1] He painted mainly city scenes, vintage cars, seascapes, cats playing jazz and flowers.

Afremov was born in Vitebsk.[citation needed] He developed his painting practice in the USSR until 1990. That year, he decided to move with his family to Mexico.[2] He settled in the Can-Cun area and opened an art gallery .[citation needed] In 2002, he moved to the United States[3] and in 2004 he started selling his paintings on eBay. After eight years in the United States, in March 2010 he moved to Playa del Carmen, Mexico[4] where he lived for nine years.

On 19 August 2019 Leonid Afremov suffered a cardiac arrest at his home and died hours later in the general hospital. He was buried in a traditional Jewish ceremony in the municipal cemetery of Playa del Carmen.[citation needed]
