Karolina Wojtas (ur. 1996-20..) – jest fotografką, studiuje w Państwowej Wyższej Szkole Filmowej, Telewizyjnej i Teatralnej im. L.Schillera w Łodzi oraz w czeskim Instytucie Twórczej Fotografii w Opavie. Żyje w kolorowym świecie eksperymentu i niekończącej się zabawy. Czerpie z dziecięcych fantazji i wspomnień. Inspiracją mogą stać się dla niej bałagan w ogrodzie dziadka albo wielka ślizgawka. Przez jej wystawy nie da się przemknąć, bywają zasypane brokatem albo balonami, ale można poczuć się w niej dzieckiem – pobawić się, porzucać i pobazgrać. Dwukrotna laureatka stypendium Ministra Kultury i Dziedzictwa Narodowego. Pokazywała swoje prace między innymi na wystawach w Wiedniu, Bratysławie, Pekinie, Kopenhadze, czy Amsterdamie gdzie wygrała konkurs ING Unseen Talent Award 2019. W te wakacje otworzyła swoje własne muzeum w rodzinnej wsi na Podkarpaciu.

Karolina Wojtas (born in 1996) – is a photographer, she studies in Film School Lodz and Institute of Creative Photography in the Czech Republic. She lives in a colorful world of experiment and endless fun. She draws from children’s fantasies and memories. Inspiration may become for her a mess in the garden of her grandfather or a huge slide. Through her exhibition, it is impossible to slip, sometimes covered with brocade or balloons. But you can feel like a child – play, abandon and scrounge.
