Andrii Bondart was born in a small Ukrainian town and his life was rather quite and monotonous up until 2005 when he won the Elworthy scholarship. This was a life-changing event - Andrii got a chance to live and study in the UK for two years. Among five other A-levels he took Art and Design in Chigwell School – a place that became his personal Hogwarts. Later he returned to Ukraine and obtained his Master's degree in Dutch from Kyiv National Linguistic University.
In 2013 Andrii co-founded DAS MODELL, an international online modelling competition that connected models, photographers, make-up artists and stylists from all over the world. DAS MODELL is still active and by 2016 it featured more than 8 thousand hopefuls and more than 200 contestants.
He was featured on several TV shows, most notably as a guest photographer on the second season of Ukraine's Next Top Model.
Andrii Bondart is currently living in Kyiv and working as a photographer and illustrator.
