Jana Vojnárová (*1982, Prague) graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague; she studied in the studios of Vladimír Skrepl, Michael Rittstein and guest teacher Silke Otto Knapp. She also completed a study internship at the School of Visual Arts in New York. In 2014 she won first prize in the Kunstpreis der Leinemann-Stiftung competition in Berlin. She is a masterful painter, for whom the human (especially female) figure has long been the basic building block of a painting, usually abstracted and fragmented, fused with an indeterminate pictorial space.
