ABOUT







Kazimir Severinovich Malevich

A pioneer of geometric abstract art and the originator of the avant-garde suprematist movement, Kazimir Severinovich Malevich was born in 1879 in Kiev, and died in 1935 in Leningrad. In 1915, Malevich laid down the foundations of Suprematism when he published his manifesto From Cubism to Suprematism. After the October Revolution (1917), Malevich became a member of the Collegium on the Arts of Narkompros, the Commission for the Protection of Monuments and the Museums Commission (from 1918 until 1919). He taught at the Vitebsk Practical Art School in Belarus (1919-1922), the Leningrad Academy of Arts (1922-1927), the Kiev State Art Institute (1927-1929), and the House of the Arts in Leningrad (1930). He wrote The World as Non-Objectivity, which was published in Munich in 1926 and translated into English in 1959. In it he outlines his Suprematist theories.

Typefaces based on his work include:

  • Malevich (2010, Artem Moiseev).
  • NCD Black Square family (2008, by Nippa Downy). Downey writes: The Black Square of Kazimir Malevich is one of the most famous creations of Russian art in the last century. The first Black Square was painted in 1915 to become the turning point in the development of Russian avant-garde..
  • Dynamich (2012, by Giuseppe Cacciatore).
  • Black Square Typeface (2012, Jekabs Osins). A nihilist experiment in which each letter is a black square, as in Kazimir Malevich's Black Square painting.
