Kazimir Malevich
/1878-1935/

Kazimir Malevich is a prominent figure in the avant-garde movement. His early years were spent in Ukrainian villages, and he briefly attended a drawing school in Kyiv during his youth. In 1896, Malevich relocated to Kursk, where he worked as a draftsman for the railway administration. Despite facing rejection in his attempts to enter the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture in 1904 and 1906, he eventually made his way to Moscow in 1907, following his mother. There, he began studying at Fyodor Rerberg's studio.

Malevich started participating in exhibitions held by the Moscow Association of Artists, the Jack of Diamonds Society (1910), and the Moscow Salon (1911). During this time, he resided and worked in the village of Nemchinovka in the Moscow region.

In 1919, Malevich held his first solo exhibition in Moscow. Alongside his artistic pursuits, he also delved into writing theoretical and philosophical works, manifestos, and pamphlets on art. In 1922, Malevich relocated to Petrograd (formerly St. Petersburg), and a year later, he had his second solo exhibition in Moscow. Over the subsequent years, he dedicated himself to teaching and participated in numerous European exhibitions.
