1) Kazimir Severinovich Malevich, 23 February 1879 to 15 May 1935 (age 56), a Russian avant-garde artist and art theorist, whose work and writing had a profound influence on abstract art in 20th century.
2) Early on, Malevich worked in a variety of styles, quickly assimilating the movements of Impressionism, Symbolism and Fauvism, and after visiting Paris in 1912, Cubism.
3) His concept of Suprematism sought to develop a form of expression that moved from the world of natural forms and subject matter in order to access "the supremacy of pure feeling" and spirituality.
4) His painting technique was the layering of paints one on another to get a special kind of color spots. He used two layers of color for the red spot - the lower black and the upper red.
5) The light ray going through these color layers is perceived by the viewer not as red, but with a touch of darkness. This technique allowed experts to identify fakes of Malevich's work.
6) Malevich's life inspires many references featuring events and the paintings as players. At the Closing Ceremony of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Malevich visual themes were featured (projections)
