Suprematism is an art movement and style that was founded by the Russian artist Kazimir Malevich in 1913. The basis behind this particular style of art is emotion, or as stated by Malevich, "the supremacy of pure artistic feeling." Suprematism emphasizes an empathetic approach to art, and these works are often not seen as distinct visual images. Pieces from this movement tend to portray geometric shapes-- squares, circles, lines, etc.--often in various colors. The Suprematism art movement first came into being when revealed in 1915.
