Born in 1944 in Čachtice, the talented artist studied at the Loughborough University in Great Britain and graduated from the University of Fine Arts in the mid 1970s. Though he lived during the normalisation era, the values he inherited from the great illustrators Vincent Hložník and Albín Brunovský ensured that Ondreička would not surrender to political pressure.
From the early 1990s, Ondreička had taught in the fine arts department of the Pedagogic Faculty of Comenius University in Bratislava. He illustrated hundreds of books, designed several stamps, and decorated a few architectural interiors. His graphic works can be found in collections at home and abroad.
