An important member of Russian avant garde and suprematism movement, Malevich was a painter and art theoretician.
Closely collaborating with Russian futurist movement, Malevich illustrated the books of Kruchenykh, Khlebnikov and other futurist poets.
In his "Suprematism" Malevich wrote: "Under Suprematism I understand the supremacy of pure feeling in creative art. To the Suprematist the visual phenomena of the objective world are, in themselves, meaningless; the significant thing is feeling, as such, quite apart from the environment in which it is called forth."
"Hence, to the Suprematist, the appropriate means of representation is always the one which gives fullest possible expression to feeling as such and which ignores the familiar appearance of objects."
The latter puts Malevich very close to the Russian futurist poets such as Khlebnikov and Kruchenyh who were somehow seeking to reach a similar degree of pure expression in language and poetry.
