In 2003, 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. Steven wants to accomplish this through the power and energy of the art that he created during his four year cancer period.
In his recent work, Csorba explores subject matter that’s every bit as accessible as it is deeply personal, using unique elements in remarkably original compositions
