    Olaf Hajek Solo Show at Whatiftheworld

    Olaf Hajek is currently showing his first solo exhibition on the African continent at Whatiftheworld Gallery in Cape Town, South Africa. In "Dark Clouds Are Gathering By Olaf Hajek," the painter and illustrator explores the continent's natural beauty and juxtaposes it with its social and political realities. The exhibition follows the release of his monograph "Flowerhead" published by Gestalten.

    Hajek draws inspiration from mythology, religion, folklore, and history in his illustrations and uses them to create an alternative reality filled with magical realism. Drawing on his impressions of Africa, he departs from his earlier works by creating dark, dreamlike and somewhat troubling imagery of the African continent.

    "Dark Clouds Are Gathering By Olaf Hajek" will be on exhibition until April 16th, 2011. Find out more at Whatiftheworld's site.
