David Ondrik grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico and now lives in Bloomington, IN. He has been practicing photography, painting, drawing, and printmaking for over 25 years. His current photographic interests lean towards the expressive possibilities of cameraless, chemical photography.
His work is in the permanent collections of the New Mexico Museum of Art, the University of New Mexico Art Museum, and several public art collections. Photographs of New Mexico appear in "Photography: New Mexico" by Thomas F. Barrow and "Undermining" by Lucy Lippard.
From 2004-2015 he taught art at the high school and elementary levels, specializing in photography but covering the gamut of drawing, painting, art history, and computer graphics. Not ceramics though. Never ceramics. In 2009 he achieved a National Board Certification for Early Adolescent / Young Adult Visual Art Instruction.
Ondrik received his MFA in Photography from Indiana University in 2017 and is currently the Visiting Assistant Professor of Photography at IU.
