Angelovich Sulimo-Samuilo (1904-1965)
was famous in Leningrad as a decorative artist, book designer, was considered
to be a great authority among painters. In the mid 1920s he was a fairly active
member of Filonov's group. During the tears 1924-26 he studied in the Art Institute.
Following the closure of that Institute, he joined the Filonov's collective where
he became one of the most active and talented students. The works that have been
preserved (in "traditional" style) reflect a fairly high professional level which
the painter had even back then.
His work from the late 1920s was of two
types: "naturalistic" or mixed style (Filonov's technique and composition were
used as a surface visual trick) and symbolical, very conspicuous, with tense shapes
and colors, mainly on large format (known only by testimonies).

Eventually there wasn't much of Filonov's
influence in his late work.

Sophia Ludvigovna Zaklikovskaia
Zaklikovskaia was one of the
core members of the oragnization. She participated in exhibition in The Publishing
House and other ones along with the group. Title pages, end matter and illustrations
to "Kalevala", made by Zaklikovskaia, have a very complex, sharp and innovative
touch in their basis. The mixture of philosophical, spacial and thematical parts,
saturation with meaning were always astonishing in her work.
