Olaf Hajek

Olaf Hajek was born December 12, 1965 in Rendsburg, Germany, along the Northern frontier to Denmark. Though he was born in Germany, he was raised in Holland before attending art school.

Hajek uses folk culture, mythology, religion, history, and geography to explore the opposition between imagination and reality within our culture.
Born in North Germany, Hajek splits his time between his homeland, London, and New York. Originally studying to be a graphic designer, Olaf switched to illustration and taught alongside the likes of Punk fashion legend, Vivienne Westwood. He quickly gained a following for his bold combinations of color, texture, and strong themes, and his success led to illustrating numerous advertising campaigns, art shows, clients, and awards.
