Raised in the suburbs amidst North Rhine-Westphalia, Dworak was trained in photo retouching within the then mostly analog pre-press industry. Until today those skills have provided him inspiration for painting techniques and working processes. Dworak studied Visual Communication in Duesseldorf and received his degree at Muthesius School of Arts in Kiel in 2001. Cross-faculty projects and the involvement with the theory of media were a focus of his studies. Christian Dworak lives and works in Kiel and Hamburg.
