Private Collection, Switzerland Vladimir Davidovich Burliuk (1882-1967) Painter, graphic artist, author and illustrator of Futurist books, studied at the Penza School of Art from 1911 to 1915 and contributed to numerous exhibitions such as Wreath/Stephanos (1907-1908), Link (1908), Vladimir Izdebsky Salon (1909,1911), Triangle (1910) the Salon des Indépendants (1914) and many more. “Father of Russian Futurism, (...) Burliuk was not a typical Futurist. (...) All his life, he experienced a ‘constant, tireless and indiscriminate thirst’ for diverse form of creativity. This irrepressible creative ecstasy helps to explain his enormous artistic heritage. The master painted and drew everything. One of the most important aspects of Futurism, ‘everythingism’ (vsechestvo), is just as synonymous with the name of David Burliuk as it is with Natalia Goncharova, whom Ilya Zdanevich called a ‘vsekha’. David Burliuk was a vsekha to the day he died. (...) Such diversity is a reflection of the arsenal of Futurist perception of the world – ‘everythingism’.” (The State Russian Museum, collective authors, Russian Futurism and David Burliuk, “The father of Russian Futurism”, Palace Editions, St Petersburg, 2000.)
