THE FIRST ABSTRACT PAINTING OF THE WORLD06 November 2017, Pepino
Malevich was wrong. The Black Square is not abstract. One hundred years later, I have finally created the first abstract painting of the art history.
The abstract art is supposed to be independent from visual references to the world. Malevich said that his Black Square evokes the experience of pure non-objectivity in the white emptiness of a liberated nothing. I’ve showed with my monochrome painting series - colors with text references - that a color can never be independent of meanings. A color is as illustrative as a picture.
A true abstract work can have no color. Furthermore, it can have no shape. Just like colors, any form is a reference to the world. It is from zero, in zero, that the true movement of being begins, Malevich stated.
The possibilities to eliminate the shape is ∞ or 0. The size of my abstract painting is zero. It has neither form nor color. Finally, abstract art has reached its culmination and perfection by me.
