| Janina Buzunaite - Zukaitiene is a Lithuanian painter, poet, accessories and metal sculptures creator. She has been a member of the Federation of Canadian Artists (FCA) since 2000. The abstract thematic is dominant in artist's work and expressionism is felt throughout all paintings. Author's fashion accessories are massive but at the same time very delicate.
As art critic Rasa Sarkauskaite (2000) has noticed Janina Buzunaite - Zukaitiene entered Lithuanian art world unexpectedly, suddenly and impressively. The paintings were full of temperament and not bound by any rules - they did not follow art school rules. Art critics compared her work to well known Georgia O'Keffer who was painting in the beginning of the 20th Century. Especially, the similarities are seen in the paintings collection 'Cactuses', the same synthesis of erotic , poetic and strong colours motives. Another art critic Romualdas Alekna (2001) referred to the artist as a phenomenon defined by Ignacy Witz in his book ' The great self taught artists' 1961. Romualdas Alekna (2005) has also stressed that Janina Buzunaite-Zukaitiene never repeats herself, there are no repetitive motives - just all original work. Furthermore, the paintings composition is well balanced with abstract and figurative details.
Since 1999 the author has already had 30 individual exhibitions nationally and internationally.
