About Suprematist Painting

Kasimir Malevich was a pioneering artist who revolutionized abstract painting through his Suprematist movement. He used geometric shapes and pure abstraction in his paintings, which abandoned figurative forms and referenced no outside world. His Suprematism had three phases; black, color, and white.

Malevich’s most famous works include “Painterly Realism of a Peasant Woman in Two Dimensions (Red Square)” and “Suprematist Composition.” These pieces were exhibited at The Last Futurist Exhibition of Painting 0.10 in 1915-16. The October Revolution of 1917 may have led Malevich into a new artistic chapter.

The manifesto “From Cubism to Suprematism,” written by Malevich in 1915, marked the foundations of the movement. In his writings, he developed the idea of the “supremacy” of the ultra-personal essence of art. His work influenced modern art for generations to come.

In conclusion, Kasimir Malevich’s innovative use of abstraction and geometric shapes paved the way for other artists to explore these concepts more fully. His work still influences modern art today and continues to be celebrated around the world for its radicalism and creativity.
