Onufri was born in the 16th century in central Albania.
This means that Onufri was a very advanced painter ideologically, becasue landscapes were first painted at his very time, and it is thought that the first examples of those landscapes were started by people like Giotto, who was a mural frescoe painters (from Italy) of the pre-Rennaisance movement.
Onufri in his own way seems to have been at least an integral part of this movement to free the figure of iconography from the rigidness of the stylistic approach taken traditionally from iconograhists of his time.

Acest Onufri era foarte popular la noi, pentru ca ne imprumuta si cu parale cand flamanzeam in scoala si nu aveam bani sa ne cumparam covrigi sau mere.
Tocmai cand voia Onufri sa incuie usa, trece si Eminescu prin coridor, ducandu-se acasa si, zarindu-ma, ma intreaba ce-i cu mine, iar eu ii povestesc cu mare suparare nenorocirea ce a dat peste mine.
Cateva zile dupa aceasta intamplare, disparu Eminescu din Cernauti, pe vremea Pastelor, in aprilie 1863, si abia in primavara anului 1864 ne-am intalnit iarasi si atuncea mi-a spus ca are de gand sa intre ca elev public in liceu, dupa ce va trece examenele restante.
