In his work, Roman Ondák questions the failure of the communist structure and explores the possibilities of other orders, new patterns of behaviour and, ultimately, alternative social and political systems. His works are often quite subtle; they penetrate the beholder's surroundings in an imaginative but very gentle and quiet way and indicate the paths to new realities. He takes an almost anthropological approach, re-combining aspects of everydayness with his penetrating artistic wit and opening up space for questioning the rules of everyday life through his poetic changes. Roman Ondák studied graphic art and painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bratislava in 1988–1994, and further at Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania (1993), Collegium Helveticum in Zurich (1999–2000), CCA in Kitakyushu (2004); he obtained the DAAD scholarship in Berlin (2007/2008), and the Villa Arson scholarship in Nice (2010).
