Olaf Hajek

Solo Show in Cape Town
Posted by Gestalten—04/2013

Under the title Strange Flowers, the current exhibition of German illustrator Olaf Hajek showcases a selection of new artworks at WHATIFTHEWORLD / GALLERY in Cape Town, South Africa.

Drawing from diverse references such as the 60's African studio photography, renaissance perspective, and the Dutch still lifes of the 1600s, his work is underpinned by the color and texture of folkloric imagery. The elaborate compositions of his recent portraits and interiors have certainly not lost any of the emotional and surrealistic traits of his earlier work.

If you didn't get the chance to visit Hajek's Black Antoinette Exhibition at Gestalten Space last year, you can still have a look at some photos here. To get a more broad overview of his visual art, consider his books Black Antoinette and Flowerhead published by Gestalten.
