Are we dancing with a Madman?


This is a series of paintings with social commentaries that speak of the rage of power, the screams of the victim and invisible erased souls begging not to be forgotten. “The Rage of Power” is one of the social commentaries paintings in the series “Dancing with a Madman” by artist Eriberto Oriol.
.
When I first saw this painting it made me think of the main character’s rage and how women have been more vulnerable in war, politics, and power just because they have a pussy, at least this is my interpretation.


Of course, this is not what this artist set out to paint; his images come from his creative zone that he allows to take charge and he just paints. In this powerful painting, the image speaks of the rage of power with an abrasive grab that symbolizes dominance and violence.
.
He uses the color pink to tease the viewer into arousal and maybe to emphasize the power that these images represent. Eriberto knows that since the beginning of time, people with power and money have had a significant impact on society when they have allowed their greed and insecurity to get the best of them.
.
Through his paintings, Eriberto is helping us see what others at times do not see. He allows the creativity of his imagination to be seen in his work. Historically that is what artists have done.
.
Artists such as Francisco Goya’s etchings “Los Caprichos” and Pablo Picasso’s with “Guernica” documented some of the cruel and inhuman events of the war, greed, and power. Some felt that these bizarre paintings were a sign of madness, completely off the wall because they were different from everyone else’s. I would argue that these artists were really in tune with the creative force of the universe.

Are we DANCING with a MAD MAN?


This artwork “HAPPY HOUR in DANTE’s INFERNO” by Eriberto Oriol

Eriberto has been activist for a long time and when the social political climate seems like “We are Dancing with a Mad Man” what does a series artist do? 

It is said, “A musician must make music, an artist must paint, and a poet must write if he is to be at peace with himself.” Abraham Maslow

For Eriberto, he must paint.

 

It takes courage to walk through the unbeaten path, especially in a society full of noisy distractions. For Eriberto that is his challenge. How does he use his ingenuity in looking at the world and continue to stay committed to creating his art?

So if you have a passion for art and are wide eye looking for something extraordinary, visit his BLOG ForbiddenArtLA.com. to see more of Eriberto’s artwork.
