“Forbidden Art”


Artist Eriberto Oriol is a maverick in his art. He has been photographing graffiti for many years; long before it was trendy, hip, safe, and accepted in the fine art world. It is the spontaneity of graffiti’s energy of being in the moment that has attracted him to this art form.
.

For some graffiti is a forbidden art form since some of the murals are in remote out of the way places in areas where only a few people would dare to travel. It is also NOT accepted and banned as fine art by many in the established art world.
.

Yet, as in most things that are forbidden, banned, or prohibited, it is what helps make Eriberto’s work in graffiti, like he is providing a FORBIDDEN FRUIT to the arts.
.

This mural is a collaboration of graffiti artists Nychos and Saturno.

The beauty of this series is the spontaneity and characters in the artwork that reflect bewilderment from the incoherent events of our contemporary world of politics, economics and environmental crisis.

The dream is to be able, to tell the TRUTH, and forge a new pathway for the world that is about human kindness, caring, sharing and creating a world that never was before.

Salsa loca/ Crazy Sauce


Texto en la Angelica Oriol

“¿ qué está pasando? Es parte de la Salsa Loca, es una serie de obras nuevas del artista Eriberto Oriol. El ve ser un artista como un privilegio para poder expresar la magia de su imaginación a través de su trabajo.

La belleza de esta serie es la espontaneidad y libertad que expresa en sus stokes y paletas de color. Los personajes parecen reflejar el desconcierto de los eventos de locura incoherentes que son parte de nuestra vida contemporánea en un mundo de política, economía y crisis ambiental.

El sueño es poder contarnos con LA VERDA y permitir el uso de nuestra creatividad e imaginación para llevarnos más allá y forjar una nueva vía para el mundo que se trata de el cuidado y la bondad humana, el intercambio creativo y crear un mundo que nunca antes había sido.

“Are we Dancing with a Madman?”


Through his paintings, artist Eriberto Oriol is helping us see what others at times may not see. He allows the creativity of his imagination to be seen in his work.

Historically that is what artists have done. For example, artists such as Francisco Goya’s etchings “Los Caprichos” and Pablo Picasso’s with “Guernica” documented some of the cruel and inhumane 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.
