Olaf Hajek


Olaf Hajek is a German artist whose work plunges the viewer into a dreamlike world of the fanciful and surreal. His new book of collected illustrations, Flowerhead: Olaf Hajek, is absolutely beautiful, showing a range of whimsical (and at times nightmarish) scenes. His illustrative style and use of colour worked perfectly to completely win me over.

My favourite illustration is the one below: Shakespeare delightfully weary of the bee resting on his nose, painted for a Shakespeare in the Park event.
