Abstract: Suprematism, initiated by Russian artist Kazimir Malevich, played an important role in the European avant-garde movement in the early twentieth century. The Suprematist Manifesto was published in 1915, in which the suprematist art style was presented and elaborated as a "beginning of the new culture". In this manifesto Malevich criticizes naturalism, aestheticism and academic realism for their imitation and reproduction of the objects in reality and advocates a purer and more rational kind of geometric abstract painting, compared to cubism and futurism. Based on the pursuit of pure color and form, Malevich emphasizes the importance of the artist’s personal consciousness and freedom in artistic creation, which exerted a profound impact on the development of abstract art and constructivism in the entire twentieth century.
