Biography[edit]

Chashnik was born in 1902, Lucyn, Russian Empire, currently Ludza, Latvia.

Chashnik was notably able in a variety of media. Aleksandra Semenovna Shatskikh describes him as "famous for his inexhaustible inventiveness and ability to apply Suprematist principles to virtually all forms of art, including easel painting."[3] He painted, was proficient in metalwork, and designed ceramics produced at the Imperial Porcelain Factory (then known as the Lomonosov Porcelain Factory).[3][4]

He died in 1929 in Leningrad, at the age of 27.

The University of Texas at Austin held an exhibition dedicated to his works in 1981.[5]
