As an artist, Christopher Onak feels that nothing in this world can limit him except the limits he places on himself. Born in 1966 in Poland, Christopher witnessed firsthand as Polish art continuously reflected European trends while sustaining its distinct character as a result of Jan Matejko's works and the Young Poland movement. It was his mother's artistic prowess, however, that piqued Christopher's interest in art at an early age. Drawing and painting eventually overtook his everyday activities and allowed him to expand his artistic proficiency. A focus on family ethics promoted by his parents, coupled with an emphasis on art and technology in school and an appeal to 18th and 19th century European art and history, prepared him to face the obstacles he would later encounter as a young painter, husband and eventual father. Thanks in part to his grandmother's roots, Christopher and his family moved to the United States in 1993 to start a new chapter and to take on new challenges, opportunities and goals. With a passion for art flowing through his veins, Christopher was, is and always will be dedicated to creating artwork. After nurturing many hopes and dreams, he is still amazed that a great deal of them have become reality, all the while encouraging him to take on larger and more challenging ones. Today Christopher Onak is a proud U.S citizen and he currently resides in Chicago, Illinois.
