Kazimir Severinovich Malevich (February 23, 1878 – May 15, 1935) was a Russian painter and art theoretician. He was a pioneer of geometric abstract art and the originator of the avant-garde Suprematist movement. He was a devout Christian mystic who believed the central task of an artist was that of rendering spiritual feeling.

Malevich was a pivotal figure of the Russian avant-garde movement during the revolutionary periods of 1905 and 1917 and immediately after. He developed a style of severe geometric abstraction called Suprematism and was a leading force in the development of Constructivism. While his work was suppressed by the Soviets during the 1930s and remained little known for decades, it was rediscovered in the mid-1950s and became an influence on such movements as Hard-edge painting and Minimalism.
