Andrea Hrnjak juxtaposes beautiful and mysterious women with wild animals, so delicately executed, they evoke innocence and sensuality at the same time. Andrea weaves gentle graphite and selective choices of color in magical ways. They conjure up a sense of wanderlust buried in all of us. We’re infatuated by the soft, youthful faces as well as the impulsive, tribal imagery. There’s a sense of allure about the wild and an air of fragility that makes these images so consoling and gorgeous. Her works take us to a spellbinding, breezy wonderland — as if to remind us, it’s important to let a little bit of wildness happen!
“I have a big respect for animals. It’s amazing how much we can learn from their courage and devotion. No matter what we do, we should do it with all our strengths,” says Andrea.
Andrea was born in Croatia, she is currently based in Vienna. Her work is inspired by a cartoons, vintage photographs, Manga, goth subculture, fashion design and her traveling heart.
