"Within every woman there is a wild and natural creature, a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing. Her name is Wild Woman..."

Clarissa Pinkola Estés



Wild. Delicate. Tempting. Andrea Hrnjak is a Vienna artist and illustrator with a penchant for the icy girls. Her works are wonderfully beguiling, evocative and sensual. Her works are 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's color palette reflects a moonlit night in the desert. Her works are delicate in both color and the hand she uses to create this pieces. Andrea's deep connection with nature and all its creatures is obvious when looking at these images.


"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?


Upon sighting Andrea’s drawings, 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.


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.
