A truly unique mix of global attractions and local charm make Chicago second to none. Home to a great history in architecture, fashion, foods, sports, music and art.
Chicago is also the home of two growing visual art movements with serious growth potential. One being the Rhythmism approach to visual art.  Secondly in the world of graphic novels we have the growing Black Age of Comics movement.  
Both can be your little discovery adventure!
Both were launched decades ago by Chicago's own Turtel Onli.  He is lovingly called "The Father of the Black Age of Comics" for this achievement to diversify the visual arts.
Both are open to all lovers of contemporary visual art! 
For a great price you can collect great original art and signed limited edition prints or graphic novels from a true contemporary visual innovator.

Chicago, the third-largest city in the United States, is located on the shoreline of beautiful Lake Michigan in northeastern Illinois. One of the top worldwide centers of commerce and trade, Chicago is also known for its legendary sports heritage and as a global tourism destination.  Each year Chicago welcomes more than 50 million visitors, many of whom arrive via the city’s two international airports. One of which – O’Hare International Airport – is the second-busiest in the world. Among metropolitan areas, Chicago has the fourth-largest gross domestic product (GDP) in the world, just behind Tokyo, New York City and Los Angeles. 

You are invited to make ONLI STUDIOS one of your cultural and urban artistic destinations.  By appointment or on our 3rd Fridays events.
