Kazimir Malevich was a Russian painter and theorist at the turn of the 19th century, as well as the founder of the artistic and philosophical school Suprematism. His ideas about forms and meaning in art would eventually constitute the theoretical underpinnings of non-objective, or abstract, art. Malevich worked in a variety of styles, but his most important and famous works concentrated on the exploration of pure geometric forms (squares, triangles, and circles) and their relationships to each other within pictorial space. Because of his contacts in the West, Malevich transmitted his ideas to his artists in Europe and the United States, thus profoundly influencing the evolution of Modern art. (The Art Story)
