About

Andrea Hrnjak

I am Croatian-born, Vienna-based, mixed media artist in love with wolves and the moon.

My work explores the relationship between the feminine,the natural world and spirituality as well as themes of mythology,fantasy and the occult.It shows gentle sensuality and untamed freedom of a woman in a wonderful and dignified form and it's inspired by the complexity and rawness of nature and what it brings to my life. 

I live with a magical Czechoslowakian Wolfdog, Arna.She inspires  and accompanies me on my journeys through misty forests,shallow waters,sleeping trees and storms...

After graduating from the University of Applied Arts in Vienna (Masters degree in Fashion Design under the Mentorship of Vivienne Westwood and Helmut Lang) my career has taken in a wide of creative activities,from fashion design and styling in Germany and Italy through to teaching at the Raffles Design Institute,Shanghai but reverted back to old love of drawing.

Past clients and collaborators include Burton Snowboards,Commons & Sense Magazine,I love Illustration,Parenting Magazine and The Clothes Maiden among others.

Welcome to my world of passion for nature,wilderness,animals and-drawing.

I do custom design for logo,books,tattoo and apparel.Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, i will get back to you as soon as possible.

Aullido de bosque y noche en los dibujos de Andrea Hrnjak

Comisionados en paseo de escape nocturno, los idilios mágicos de la esencia de hadas asoman para, con la ayuda de mariposas y flores, arrojar fragancias de rosas y nardos sobre el augurio de liberación de las almas aterradas de ciudad.

Son los bosques de naturaleza encumbrada el hábitat de lo fantástico, así lo atestiguan los cuentos y los fantasmas nostálgicos que ellos han inspirado. Son padre y madre que cobija y que arrebata. No obstante, el hombre, uno más de sus observados, se ha rebelado para atosigarse de tecnología y prisa. Alejado de sus similares: los animales; los humanos: seres “superdotados” de inteligencia y creatividad han dado un salto para encumbrarse en deidades de ellos mismos. Con el conocimiento como atenuante, han privilegiado el progreso y el dinero en acto fútil por saciar su ambición. Ambición en juego de equilibrios rotos que en futuros plásticos ha dado pie a la erosión de aquello que alguna vez respeto y cuido.

Los dibujos de Andrea Hrnjak retoman la calma y la conexión olvidada entre los hombres y animales, todos del mismo origen y acompañantes de la evolución son caracteres en cohabitación de los temperamentos acicalados por el plástico de la modernidad. Son aullido de bosque que se eleva durante la noche para arrullarse de luna menguante y estrellas, estrellas que tatúan los cuerpos de sus cuestionados. Son anuncio de lobos y cuervos, de búhos sabios que posan en hombros mientras lanzan sus solemnes augurios. Hay poesía, hay metáfora visual.

Wild. Delicate. Tempting. Art by Andrea Hrnjak 


Andrea Hrnjak is a Vienna artist and illustrator with a love for wild animals and a penchant for the icy girls. Her works are wonderfully beguiling, evocative and sensual. Her works are a window into a world we once knew, where the union between human and animal is harmonious and calm, a radiant and carefree spirit that we crave today. Nature has its own rhythms and orders. The images of chilly high mountains and tempting misty nights remind us that the world doesn’t just revolve around human competitions, they invoke a modesty in us.

 Andrea Hrnjak's Spirit Animals

Her colored pencil works show her genuine interest and love for all animals. Andrea's color palate reflects a moonlit night in the desert. Her works are delicate in both color and the hand she uses to create these pieces. Andrea's deep connection with nature and all of its creatures is obvious when looking at these images.

Delicately Drawn Women with Fierce Beasts


The lines Andrea Hrnjak draws are so gentle and light, these images seem to be the definition of ethereal. Glamorous girls in fashion editorial poses caress wild beasts with a softness that casts predators in a loving light. As an animal enthusiast myself, I found these images instantly relatable on a personal level. They visualize a strong connection to the wild, spiritually or emotionally. The women look empowered by their majestic companions too. Just like the animal she intertwines with, each one holds herself with the silent confidence that beautiful beings may also be fierce in their nature. Which animal do you channel your power from?
