When you look at the work of Estonian illustrator, graphic designer and art director Eiko Ojala, it’s hard to imagine it’s just flat pieces of paper. Even in printed form his works seem to spring from the page, bringing a surprising extra layer of dynamic detail to his otherwise wonderful illustrative style. As you can see, this is far beyond typical arts & crafts time.

With over 8 years of experience in paper collage, illustration and graphic design, Ojala has mainly focused his talents towards being featured in books and magazines. His subjects range from portraits of famous Estonian people, to series’ of forest scenes and minimalist nudes. One of his latest works was featured on the cover of Edgar Award nominated Norwegian author Jo Nesbo’s recently released Lumememm and Päästja. You can see more of his fantastic work at ploom.tv.
