I love the bold work of German artist and illustrator Olaf Hajek. Hajek is a well known and successful illustrator with big name clients, such as, The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, Wallstreet Journal, Forbes, and many more.
Hajek originally studied graphic design, but realized he didn’t want to be in front of a computer and switched to illustration. None of his work is done digitally, he mostly uses acrylic paint on wood, paper, or chipboard.
His personal artwork is influenced by mythology, religion and history, often melding aspects of different cultures together. Check out his website for more.
