The UNOVIS group was formed as an association of students of Kazimir Malevich at the Vitebsk Art School (1919-1921), where he has replaced Chagall as its head. In this Art School it has quickly become evident that he intended to introduce a new type of art education, in which all forms of art are developed on the basis of Suprematism and are integrated into a universal system. He received the full support of Vera Ermolaeva (who was the rector and has in fact invited him to that School) and El Lissitzky (who has also taught there), as well as that of his pupil Ilya Chashnik, who accompanied him from Moscow.
