Bio: Olaf Hajek was born in North Germany along the frontier to Denmark, and now resides in his homeland, London and New York. Whilst studying Graphic Design, Olaf quickly realized he did not want to be sitting in front of a computer all day and moved into Illustration. His formative professional years were spent in Amsterdam, where he threw himself into the social and freelance Illustration scene, and he has proven to be a strong asset in all senses to the Global Contemporary Art Community. He had taught illustration alongside the likes of Punk fashion legend: Vivienne Westwood, and his pioneering, altruistic tendencies have helped nurture much talent: young and old. His elegant, figurative, colorful, textural work holds a strong sense of character and fine art sensibility, he exhibits regularly in galleries all over the world, and appears ubiquitously in the awards: American Illustration, Images, Communication Arts, D&AD. Olaf's versatile and ever evolving work is well established in all areas: advertising, design, publishing and editorial, with the occasional foray into animation, and he looks set to be one of the superstars of the genre for many years to come.
