Eriberto Oriol
Painter and Photographer

The Artist’s DREAM and the MUSE
The artist’s dream is to be able to live off his or her art.
The Muse is the one who believes in the power of the arts; trust their taste and intuition.
Just like with Picasso, Van Gogh and other great artist, needed a Muse, so does Eriberto.

Limited Edition photos and prints

Underground – METRO – Los Angeles

“Historical and Breath Taking”
When Eriberto was down there taking the photos, he was amazed; it was a totally different world.
It reminded Eriberto of Dante’s poem, The Divine Comedy and the descent to the underworld.

Gold Line and Red Line to the Civic Center:

They are amazing and a great insight into the process of excavating and making the dream of the Los Angeles metro underground a reality. Besides these photos being historical they are also spectacular.
