BORN IN ZURICH IN 1992, ONA SADKOWSKY HAS ALREADY GATHERED A STRONG FOLLOWING DESPITE HER YOUNG AGE AND IS CONSIDERED ONE OF TODAY’S MOST ASPIRING YOUNG ARTISTS IN SWITZERLAND. HER DISTINCTIVE DRAWING STYLE IS WELL APPRECIATED NOT ONLY WITHIN THE SWISS URBAN ART SCENE, BUT ALSO TROUGH BOTH SOLO AND GROUP SHOWS AT GALLERIES AND AT ART FAIRS IN HONG KONG, DENMARK, HUNGARY AND SWITZERLAND. ONA ALSO PARTICIPATES REGULARLY IN LIVE PERFORMANCES WHERE SHE PAINTS MURALS FOR SPECIAL EVENTS AND FOR A VARIETY OF AUDIENCES.​

 

ONA GREW UP IN ZURICH’S OLD CITY CENTRE IN A FAMILY OF ARTISTS, IN A WORLD OF DAILY PAINTING AND CREATIVITY, SPENDING HOLIDAYS AND MANY WEEKENDS IN HER GRANDFATHER’S ATELIER AND HER WEEKDAYS IN THE APARTMENT THAT SERVED AS HER MOTHERS STUDIO. SHE ALWAYS KNEW THAT ART WOULD PLAY AN IMPORTANT PART IN HER LIFE. THE ARTIST WORKS IN HER OWN STUDIO IN ZURICH AND CONTINUES VARIOUS PROFESSIONAL ACTIVITIES IN THE FIELD OF DESIGN. ONA HAS WORKED WITH PRESTIGIOUS NAMES SUCH AS ABSOLUT VODKA, COOP, HAVAS WORLDWIDE, DISNEY, ISS AND AND MANY MORE.​ 

 

HER STYLE IS CONSIDERED COLOURFUL AND IMAGINATIVE. HER SUBJECTS ARE HUMANLIKE BEINGS WHO, DESPITE THEIR COMIC LIKE STYLE, HAVE A CERTAIN DIFFICULT-TO-EXPLAIN MELANCHOLY OR SADNESS. THE VIEWER OFTEN SENSES SOME SORT OF TABOO, NUDITY, SEXUALITY AND NOTORIETY POP UP. “MY ART IS SHARP, LOUD, FRESH AND NAUGHTY - BUT NOT ALWAYS“, SAYS ONA.​ ONA STRIVES TO SHOW HOW ART AND IDEAS CAN ARISE SPONTANEOUSLY. SHE WANTS TO MAKE HER WORK AS PERFECT AS POSSIBLE. SHE AIMS FOR AN IMAGE OR DRAWING THAT IS SIMILAR WITH A PRINT. EVEN UPON CLOSE INSPECTION, NO ONE WOULD NOTICE THAT THE WHOLE THING IS PAINTED OR DRAWN. ONA IS PLANNING MANY MORE EXHIBITIONS, COMMISSIONED WORKS AND SPECIAL PROJECTS.
