Alžbeta Čižikova

Born in 1936 in Kovačica.
She completed her primary education in Kovačica, and graduated from a technical high school for administration in Pančevo. Before she retired, she worked as a civil servant.
She is the first woman who became a naïve painter in former Yugoslavia; her landscapes and genre art often show sunflowers as a light motif while tradition and customs of her own people represent the primary topic of her work. Apart from landscapes and genre motifs, her rich work includes portraits and panoramas, too.
She became a member of the Gallery of Naïve Art in 1954.
