Born in Kiev to Polish parents in 1879, Kazimir Malevich was a painter living in turbulent times, seeing war and revolution. Considered to be a radical artist at the time, Malevich is the founder of Suprematism, a style of painting that involves creating geometric forms with limited colours. His most famous of these is the Black Square series, despite being hidden from public view for years after his death.
Malevich's Suprematism goes beyond pictures of singular shapes, however, and includes Russian landscapes, agricultural workers, and religious scenes. These can be seen at the Tate Modern between the 16th July - 26th October as part of their Malevich exhibition. Bookings cost £14.50 for adults or £12.50 concessions, but is free for under 12s. This will be the first retrospective of his work in thirty years, and the first in the UK. As well as Malevich's paintings, you will also be able to learn about his brief change of career into teaching and writing.
