Design or art hero: “It’s the way Malevich reduced the painting to the very escence that fascinates me. When you look at the image it appears to only show a black square on a white background, nothing fancy. But if you go into detail, you see how the paint is structured, how the outlines are not exactly accurate, and how the square relates to the white space — it’s really an example of perfection. The whole revolutionary idea behind it is stunning, too. Paint a black square on a canvas and start an art revolution.”
