I am Andrea Hrnjak,a Croatian-born,Vienna-based artist and devoted admirer of the wild,the luminous and the mystical.
My journey has been one of self-discovery, adaptability, and creative exploration.
As a young student at the University Of Applied Arts in Vienna,i had the extraordinary opportunity to study under the guidance of Vivienne Westwood and Helmut Lang, two iconic figures in the fashion world.I honed my skills, developed a keen eye for style, and cultivated a deep understanding of the industry.
Eager to explore new horizons,i embarked on a transformative journey to China. Intrigued by the country's rich cultural heritage,i seized the opportunity to teach and share my knowledge with aspiring fashion enthusiasts. Teaching in China not only provided a fresh perspective but also allowed me to immerse myself in a different culture, fostering personal growth and expanding my creative outlook.
After many years in the fashion industry and abroad,i experienced a turning point in my career. Deep within,i rediscovered a long-lost passion for drawing, which had always held a special place in my heart. Fueled by this newfound inspiration,i made the courageous decision to pursue my artistic inclination wholeheartedly.
With an unwavering commitment to my craft,i embarked on a new chapter of my life and dedicated myself to refining my drawing skills, experimenting with various techniques, and exploring diverse artistic styles.
Throughout my illustrious career, i have had the privilege of collaborating with esteemed clients and partners from various industries, each contributing to my journey of creative exploration.
Some notable clients and collaborators include:
Burton Snowboards,Commons & Sense Magazine Tokyo,The Clothes Maiden Magazine,I Love Illustration,Parenting Magazine etc...
