Olaf Hajek

I have always loved the work of illustrator Olaf Hajek, a German born artist who now resides in London. As I was browsing his website I came across these gorgeous works that I had not seen before. I was taken away with his incredibly vivid palette and the composition of the paintings. I love how his work has a feeling of primitive and visionary art. They also seem to have an influence of wood block printing and the vibrancy of colors is stunning! I would love to have one of these prints hanging in our place! His first monograph, Flowerheads, has just been published and I can't wait for it to be available in the US to see it in person.
