"1999"

Most of these Rhythmistic works of fine art are availble
to collect as artifacts or limited edition prints.

While often hiding in plain sight, Onli used to date his works "1999" in the 1970s in reaction to art directors who used to tell him his work was ahead of its time in relationship to being a major market illustrator.  He did create published illustrations for Playboy, The Paris Metro, WGN,  MODE Avante Garde and many more.  

He wanted to explore the potential of Rhythmism as a commercial art.
