ART & POETRY



Welcome to an enchanting journey where the wild spirit dances under the watchful gaze of the moon, transporting you to a world where the boundaries between magic and reality cease to exist.

Tree Of Life



Let us seek its subtle light,
In the quiet corners of the night.
For in the treasury of wisdom, we find,
A sanctuary for the searching mind.

Phoenix



From the ashes born, a tale untold,
A guided journey, daring and bold,
In ember’s gleam, a spirit takes flight,
A phoenix rising to the heavens’ height.

New Moon



A beacon of promise in the cosmic expanse,
A tender smile, a luminous trance,
In the cradle of darkness, it finds its tune,
The enchanting melody of the newborn moon.

Cosmic Dance



Embrace the galaxies within your soul,
Let the universe guide and make you whole,
Through the vastness, our spirits entwine,
A dance with the cosmos, a connection divine.

Year Of The Dragon



Embrace the power that lies within,
Let your spirit soar, let it begin,
For like a dragon, strong and grand,
You hold the world in your command.

Magic Mountains




Forest Spirits
Mirroring



In shadows deep, where whispers lie,
A door emerges beneath the sky,
A portal to the wild unknown,
To realms where untamed spirits roam.

The path is winding, untamed, and free,
A dance with the wild, a symphony,
Discover echoes of your soul,
As the door unveils, and stories unfold.


She Wolf



Embrace the wild within, let it unfold,
A spirit untethered, fearless and bold,
In the wilderness of the soul,we find,
The untamed beauty of our truest kind.

Wolf Shadow



In the veiled embrace of shadows,wisdom is found,
Strength in the silence, in the darkness profound,
For in embracing the shadows that reside,
We uncover the depth where our true selves hide.

ABOUT

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 and painting, 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...


Andrea Hrnjak

From an early age, I found solace and inspiration in the stories of my homeland, where tales of witches and otherworldly beings were inseparable from the culture and landscape. These narratives, took on a new significance when I embarked on my artistic journey.

In my youth, I overlooked their significance, but it was during my studies in Vienna that their uniqueness and captivating allure awakened within me. These tales, like whispers from the ancients, ignited a profound yearning for a more magical life. It was then that I embarked on a wondrous exploration into the realms of mysticism, ancient myths, and sacred rituals.

Drawing from mythology, fantasy and the occult my art seeks to bridge the realms of the known and the mysterious.Within surreal and dreamy scenes, the feminine form dances in harmony with nature, while spirit animals guide us through hidden realms.

In this wondrous exploration, I discovered my own profound meaning, unveiling the radiant power of the divine feminine within.

May my creations ignite the spark of wildness within you,encourage you to embrace your inner magic and walk a path less traveled.

FEATURES

Juxtapoz Magazine

"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." 




Design By Humans

"The wooded path to grandma’s house will look very different through the eyes of this week’s Featured Artist Andreahrnjak. Notorious fairy tale villains take on a magical new luster and — before you know it — the big bad wolf isn’t so bad and the wicked witch isn’t so wicked. Andreahrnjak’s art is filled with whimsical visions of wolves, witches, and phases of the moon. She describes them as “wild but delicate, witchy and tempting” and they offer a refuge from the outside world...Her artwork shines brightly with this love of nature and is a unique combination of the freedom she finds in the woods and the “old Slavic witchy fairy tales and myths” that she grew up with as a child."

Iconocero

"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."

Stew

"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."
