Résumé : David Burliuk was a painter, writer, poet, performance artist, journal editor, and publisher, whose activism and leadership situated him as a primary avant-garde figure, particularly in his native Ukraine and Russia. His open and often impetuous stance against the stifling official peredvizhnik (Russian Realist) ideology and progressive political and artistic views earned him the title “father of Futurism.” His overarching goal of improving the quality of life for those living under tsarist rule grew out of a desire to reform the tsarist autocracy, bureaucratic inefficiency, persecution, and censorship in the Russian Empire.
