VERY FAR OUT

Far Out was another one to remember. We took it underground for our most recent Wine & Bowties party. Bringing together an assortment of DJ’s in Yung_smh, Starter Kit & Sad Andy, we brought the vibe back and then some. Shout out to the Command Center and the folks who helped put it all together, and a big thanks to our eclectic crowd who make the parties so dope.

PAINTINGS BY LEONID AFREMOV

Paintings lightweight fascinate me. A series of deliberate (or perhaps whimsical) brush strokes that lead to a masterpiece. I want to see what goes on in a painter’s head. Do they know what they’re gonna do ahead of time, or do they simply build off of each previous stroke. Probably a combination of both. It’s the efforts of Leonid Afremov that got me pondering art at 4:38 on a Thursday. It’s amazing what colors and strokes can lead to.

    Thanks so much for the bio Nicole.

    It’s interesting that he uses a knife instead of a paintbrush.
    His creative process is really unique.
