Peter ERZVO Zvonar

We commend you on “DARK” which reflects a visual intensity.and a unique individual expression . Your impassioned lens in “WET” creatively encapsulates a unique artistic vision with luminescent positive energy as it radiates a lyrical, poetic artistic viewpoint. We enjoyed your sterling visual voyage in “BODY AND SOUL” with its sophisticated, compelling composition which reflects a unique sensitive “Third Eye.” Your aesthetically absorbing “FREEDOM” reverberates with a powerful interplay of light interacting with vibrant tonal combinations, as it is juxtaposed with a superb perspective. Your provocative ‘Oeuvre” oeuvre treasures our world with its eternal visual symbolism and embodies a timeless message while offering a powerful narrative. We salute you on your intriguing work which conveys the invisible within the visible and seizes the essence of the emotional and physical experience with a profound sensitivity to humankind. Your compelling photography reveals a timeless perspective and passionately captures the excitement and visceral quality of our universe.

If we were to permit ourselves the challenge of characterizing the complex and often contradictory quality of Zvonar’s art we might say that its  ncongruous facets arise out of a struggle to make manifest an ‘inner realism’ only available to the artist. It arises out of a world that only the artist is capable of identifying and tracing. He is engaged in seeking in art a satisfaction for man’s rage for order; he finds spiritual order, not divine revelation, in a secular imagination. In outlining that world’s contours to the observer Zvonar‘s logic of passion gives moral authority and remarkable subver- sive importance to the artist’s task of unveiling the marvelous…

He offers an escape route from the small box of the mind and everyday morals.

His work is Daring and Courageous. Its inspiring and offensive at the same time. Its everything we are but are afraid to confess. Its everything we love but were told to hate and feel ashamed about it. Is the wrong we wish to be right. The fantasy we wish to be real. Is the romantic pervert that lives inside of us in a prison. His work is offering the key to escape from this prison but the fools will never have the balls to unlock the gate.

Only with his courage and creativity.

These photos are so good we almost can’t post them. You should see what we held back.

 
Slovakian photographer Peter Erzvo Zvonar dares to push boundaries of taste and sensibility in a conservative country and climate. He is big, dashing, and ridiculously sexy himself. (Guess which images here are his self-portraits.) He likes upending the limits of decorum and piety. Maybe we will get the nerve to show you his Christian images at some point. Wow.
Zvonar is to be admired for following his heart and a few other organs to create his images and expose the world to what turns him on. We should all be so open and transparent. And all of this is done with a wicked sense of humor. Even though his images can be controversial, he continues to garner awards and commendations as well as be included in dozens of international exhibitions.

“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.”
