Olaf Hajek is an Illustrator, Artist, Graphic Designer, and Author, with clients ranging from the NY Times, The New Yorker, and Washington Post, to MontBlanc, Swatch, and Diptych. Originally studying Design, Olaf switched to illustration, and taught alongside the likes of punk fashion legend, Vivienne Westwood.
Born in North Germany, Hajek travelled the world collecting inspiration, before once again residing most of the year in his homeland. African traditions, Indian temple art, South American folklore, and pop culture are all expressed in new ways in his almost surreal tableaux. He plays with motifs of flora and fauna, archaic symbols and current themes, working them all into his pieces in great detail and vibrant color.
His personal work has been exhibited in solo exhibitions in Hamburg, Munich, Berlin, Atlanta and Cape Town.
