ABOUT




"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.” Stew

"Upon sighting Andrea’s drawings and, you’ll find your inner animal spirit wanting to be set free and filled with a desire to conquer the universe. When we look at her sketches with an open mind and rely on our imagination, the hidden meaning between each piece perfectly conveys what our free spirited minds have always wanted to say. These sketches urge us to let loose and set free our inner strangeness, quirks, and repressed desires and remain untamed in a society that wants us to fit into a certain mould.” Untwine

"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?” Doodlers Anonymous

My Story


I am Croatian-born,Vienna-based artist with a love for wild animals and nature.My career has taken in a wide of creative activities,from styling and fashion design in Italy and Germany,launching my own fashion label,through to teaching in China,but reverted back to my love of drawing.With combined techniques from several forms of media my work explores the relationship between the feminine,the natural world and spirituality and is inspired by the boundless possibilities that nature and humanity provide.Currently i am dedicated to my pencil and create intricate drawings where colour is added in a whimsical manner.My process is organic and imaginative with a strong attention to line and detail.I live with a beautiful Czechoslovakian Wolfdog Arna that also inspired most of my drawings.
