Lithuanian Artists in Adelaide

Genovaite Kazokas, author of the book "Lithuanian artists in Australia 1950 - 1990", writes that Adelaide comprised the largest number of artists in Australia who had completed formal art training. Some had gained qualifications in Lithuania, two graduated from the L'Ecole des Arts et Metiers. Over the next few weeks I plan to highlight some of these artists.

I'd love to know more about Neliubsys - I have one of his paintings and it's gorgeous!

hello i am interested in Antanas Rukstele as i may have a piece of his art work done while he was in the Ludwig Camp in 1940.

Sadly, I don't have nearly as much information as I would like about my grandfather Antanas Rukstele, but I would be happy to answer any questions that I can. I would also like to learn as much as I can about their time in Australia. You can email me at arukstele at aol dot com

Thanks
