Olaf Hajek


—I try to combine modern, contemporary with traditional, folkloric elements. Natural elements are inspiring, in that they always look different. It is somehow something that you can approach as your own creation.
—I work only in analogue style. I work as a painter. When I start working is all aout brushes, colours, backgrounds, patterns. The only digital thing is when I scan the work to send it to the client.
—There is a fine line between art and illustration. I'm an artistic illustrator, and to be able to work in personal projects gives me a lot of freedom.
