Flowerhead: The Illustrations of Olaf Hajek by Olaf Hajek
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The first monograph dedicated to the work of one of the most internationally sought-after editorial illustrators. Olaf Hajek is currently one of the world's most successful illustrators. His work can be seen in publications including The New York Times and The Guardian, in advertisements for companies such as Bacardi and Daimler Benz as well as on stamps for Great Britain's Royal Mail. Despite the diversity of his clientele, Hajek makes no aesthetic compromises. His characteristic style is what makes his work appealing to a broad audience and range of clients. Hajek's colorful illustrations and textured paintings are infused with a folkloristic naivety and freshness. Influenced by West African and Latin American art, he creates surreal juxtapositions of fairy tale fantasies and disordered realities. Whether Hajek dresses angelical cherubs in Mexican wrestler masks or adorns hairstyles with vibrant ecosystems of birds, butterflies, and flowers, his "magical realism" enriches the perspective of anyone viewing his work. Flowerhead is Olaf Hajek's first monograph. The book presents his advertising and editorial work, commercial portraits, and fashion illustration as well as personal art that he created exclusively for the book.
