David Davidovich Burliuk (Давид Давидович Бурлюк; 21 July 1882 – 15 January 1967) was a Ukrainian Futurist, Neo-Primitivist, book illustrator, publicist, and author associated with Russian Futurism.
The son of a wealthy bailiff, Burliuk played an important role in the inception of Russian Futurism. In 1907, after studies in Kazan', Munich, and Paris, he settled in Moscow, where he met members of the early avant-garde. From 1912 to 1914, Burliuk devoted his energy to poetry and organized avant-garde publications and exhibitions. He and Mayakovsky studied at the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture, and Architecture until they were expelled in 1914. In 1913 and 1914, Burliuk organized his Futurist Tour of Russia, during which he, his brother Vladimir, Mayakovsky, and Kamensky gave poetry readings and lectured on the Futurist movement. Burliuk fled the Civil War in 1918, arriving in the United States in 1922 by way of Siberia, Japan, and Canada. He died on Long Island. (Source)
