Showman, poet and painter. David Burliuk, the “father of Russian and Ukrainian futurism,” inspired and promoted the earliest avant-garde exhibitions and publications in the Russian empire. His later career is less well-known. Although recent interest has led to exhibitions in the Russian cities of Ufa and St. Petersburg, the dispersal of his works over three continents has made a full account of his evolution difficult.
