It was one of the most radical and influential forms of abstract art.

The suprematism art style was developed in Russia in the 20th century.

It’s among the most important kinds of abstract art. It is strictly abstract, without any reference to landscape, or figures.

Suprematism is a movement in abstract art, focused on basic geometric forms, such as circles, squares, lines, and rectangles, painted in a limited range of colors.

The style was invented by Kazimir Malevich between 1913 and 1915 but it really started to be famous after World War I from 1918 onwards when Malevich had his first Suprematist exhibition.

Suprematism is an art movement that was founded by Kazimir Malevich in Russia, and announced in Malevich’s 1915 exhibition, The Last Futurist Exhibition 0.10 in St. Petersburg.

His new form of art was based on geometric shapes and took influences from Cubism and Futurism.

Many of the Suprematism paintings and drawings contain geometric forms, although there are also some Suprematism artworks that do not show any geometric shape.

Kazimir Severinovich Malevich February 1879 – May 1935. He was a Russian avant-garde artist and art theorist. His work and writing had a profound influence on the development of non-objective art (or abstract art) in the 20th century.

Malevich worked in a variety of styles, quickly assimilating the movements of Impressionism, Symbolism, and Fauvism, and after visiting Paris in 1912, Cubism.

His early experiments as a painter led him towards the invention of suprematism, a bold visual language of abstract geometric shapes.
