Karolina Jabłońska (born 1991) is a graduate of the Painting Faculty at the Fine Arts Academy in Cracow and, currently, a PhD student at the Academy. She creates characteristic, decorative and lively-hued paintings, in which exotic plants and animals entwine in old masters-style compositions and a fluid, art-décoish contour encloses folk-inspired, naïve motifs.
She participated in the 42nd “Bielska Jesień” Painting Biennial finale. She was also nominated for the prize awarded by the University of Arts in Poznań – “New Image – New Look” and came 3rd in the 2nd “Painting As A Universal Language” Competition.
Besides painting, Jabłońska explores naïve art of the region of Lesser Poland (Małopolska). She gathers and develops archives of forgotten folk artists, bringing their legacies to the history of Polish art.
Her works have been on show at BWA in Tarnow since October 22nd, 2015. “Maronka”, solo exhibition curated by Ewa Łączyńska-Widz, will last until the 22nd of November.
