Geometric abstraction paintings are a style of abstract art that emerged in the early 20th century.

This style of painting is mostly characterized by the use of geometric shapes, not always perfect shapes of squares, circles, lines, rectangles, and triangles.

Artists who create geometric abstractions make compositions that are not representational or figurative subject matter.

They create a visual language that is universal and transcends cultural boundaries.

The use of color is also an important aspect of geometric abstraction.

Artists often use bold, contrasting colors to create a sense of energy and dynamism in their works.

Some well-known artists associated with this style include Kazimir Malevich, Piet Mondrian, Joan Miro, and Wassily Kandinsky.

Geometric abstraction has had a significant influence on the development of modern art and continues to be an important style of painting today.

Kazimir Malevich — Suprematism


The name was given by the artist Kazimir Malevich to the abstract art he developed in 1913.

It is characterized by basic geometric forms, such as circles, squares, lines, and rectangles, painted in a limited range of colors.

Suprematism focused on the application of elementary geometric forms such as the square, the cross, and the circle.

Suprematists also explored the idea of non-Euclidean geometry.

It is that being a practice that “defied logic” by giving the illusion of fixed geometric forms floating or moving in space.
