Ilya Chashnik

, May 5, 2014

Ilya Chashnik (1902–1929) was an outstanding representative of early twentieth century art in the young Soviet Union. He developed his own style within the Suprematist idiom, evolving from Malevich’s white compositions to paintings in which black was the predominant element. In these works geometric shapes form crossing planes with a tendency towards rhythm and symmetry.
