Kazimir Malevich was a Russian painter known as the pioneer of the avant-garde ‘Suprematist movement’. He aspired to become a painter as a child and trained under some of the greatest artists of his age. He further enrolled himself in a renowned art school to sharpen his artistic skills. After completing his studies he successfully showcased his work in one of the most respected art exhibitions. This encouraged him to develop his 'Cubo-Futuristic' painting style while attending some other exhibitions. All through his career he has been very versatile and has worked in various styles. After the First World War, he developed his avant-garde style called ‘Suprematist’. His ideas were very unconventional which made his paintings more powerful. He developed his newly formed style through his book 'From Cubism to Suprematism'. During this, he came up with some of his most notable works like 'Black Square' and 'White On White'. He had various contacts in the west which helped him to promote this style on a global scale to influence upcoming artists. He expressed his thoughts on varied topics through his paintings, writings and work. Take a look at the thoughts and quotes by Kazimir Malevich which tends to give you few important truths of life in the most creative way.
Man, as a form, bears within him the eternal principle of being, and by economic movement along his endless path his form is also transformed, just as everything that lives in nature was transformed in him.
I have established the semaphore of Suprematism. I have beaten the lining of the colored sky, torn it away and in the sack that formed itself, I have put color and knotted it. Swim! The free white sea, infinity, lies before you.
There is movement and movement. There are movements of small tension and movements of great tension and there is also a movement which our eyes cannot catch although it can be felt. In art this state is called dynamic movement.
I recommend that you should work actively... and study the artistic structures of Rubens, Rembrandt, Titian, Watteau, Poussin, and other painters, even Chardin, where he is an artist. Study very closely their dabbing manner of execution and try to copy a small piece of canvas, just one square inch.
