Vladimir Mayakovsky

Vladimir Mayakovsky was born in Bagdadi (now Mayakovsky) Russia in 1883 and moved to Moscow in 1906. In 1910 he was one of the founders of the Russian Futurist Group. As a poet, playwright and painter, Mayakovsky was deeply involved in the Russian Revolution — producing propaganda, plays, poems, and posters of high artistic order. In 1923 he founded the Futurist Literary Review, LEF. Mayakovsky shot himself in 1930 at the age of thirty-six. Today, he is considered in Russia and throughout the world, as one of the twentieth century’s foremost poets.
