Peace Walker by artist Steven Csorba

“My greatest  gift was not surviving cancer – but actually the realization that to help others is to make you strong. I was given the gift of strength to be a “Warrior of Hope” This is where I found my peace. In Leonardo’s painting of the Saint   Jerome – he drew some buildings that appear far in the distance, hidden between some rocks behind the Saint. He did this to symbolize the Saint’s act of helping the wild injured lion as a spiritual gesture separated from the material world. I did the same by representing peace as a spiritual gesture – the animal depicted in the foreground is taking the “hope warrior mask” for a ride. He is content, happy and at peace. Small bomb-like symbols appear in the distance separated from this foreground scene. They serve to underscore the walk of peace through symbolic contrast”

In 2003, artist Steven Csorba was diagnosed with cancer of the jaw and underwent 14 hours of surgery, seven weeks of radiation treatments, and four years of recuperation. Steven sees himself as more than just a cancer survivor – but rather an artist who can take the lessons he learned from his cancer experience and help the world “see hope” in a completely different way.  more
