Body & Soul by Peter ERZVO Zvonar

“The art has to be controversial. All great works of art which were supertemporal were always outside of majority’s understanding. The art should be stirring. It’s a kind of rebellion that comes from the heart and soul of the artist. When I create art I don’t think about the consequences of it, but the specific message of the piece, how I captured the story and it doesn’t matter if it’s a romantic story, story of one person, terrifying story or whether it shows ones hidden desires and urges. I like to portray these in particular. Maybe that’s why there is a lot of sexuality in my artwork as well as Christian symbolism. That’s why I am not as popular in my homeland Slovakia which has a very traditional Christian society. I also believe it’s because of my attitude to life and my openness.”
