An avant garde artist
Kazimir Malevich began to draw and paint when he was 11. Few people know that the basis for his avant garde painting was the ornamentalism and buoyancy of traditional Ukrainian culture. The future pioneer of abstract art was born in Kyiv.
Often in cultural history, extraordinary figures are remembered only for one thing or another: as authors of books or makers of paintings, for example, or as writers of songs or builders of houses. Often these people have many hidden or simply forgotten sides. Malevich, one of the most controversial artists of the last century, had a similar fate. He is often associated only with his painting "Black Square" (also called "Black Square on White Background"), which tends to obscure other dimensions of his work.
