  Art work inspired by the works of Kasimir Malewitsch


Malewitsch - russian avangardist of the first quarter of the 20th century - born on the 23rd of February 1879 in Kiev died on the 15th of May in Leningrad.

Malwitsch said about his beloved farmers: "The most important criteria that showed the difference between workers and farmer for me: the drawing. The workers don’t produce any drawings, to decorate their houses neither did they care about art. The farmers entailed all of that... In the country there was much interest for art ( at the time a word unknown to me). It is probably more fitting to say objects were produced that I found particularly beautiful. Those objects bore the secret of my sympathy for my fellow country folks. With deep emotion do I observe the farmers while they create their ornaments and helped them to to paint the wood floors in their huts (khata) with alumina and create ornate borders around their fireplaces. They painted pretty whimsical roosters,little horses and flowers.Colors are being made on site out of different forms of clay and dutch azur blue."
