Who is Eriberto Oriol?


 

He is an artist/activist that is making a difference.

Art is a powerful vehicle for communication and a way to express a vision that is beyond the capacity of words.

In this mural, artist Alex Poli aka ManOne is working to do just that and going beyond words is recognizing Eriberto for his contribution to the community as an artist, mentor, and activist.

 

ManOne has known Eriberto for about 15 years and knows him for working to make a difference in other young artists’ career through his art, photography, voice, and encouragement.

Thank you ManOne for acknowledging Eriberto’s contribution to the arts through this mural.

The mural is on Echo Park Street one block west of Sunset Blvd.

“What Makes Art Valuable?”


It is the magic and power of the imagination that adds value to art.

 

.
The genius of an artist is the one that responds to the sense of wonder and magic of imagination. Even when not knowing where the journey will lead, or what is the meaning of their inspiration.
.
Some feel that being an artist is not a realistic way of life. Eriberto feels that the integrity of life is to follow the wisdom of one’s heart.
.
In his painting “Obscure Identity,” the figure’s face is obscured and she appears to be traveling in space as if on a journey to bring her out the shadows of obscurity. The balance of bold colors and lines gives the figure a certain kind of grace and elegance.
.
Eriberto feels that ART is sometimes seen, as a romantic cult for odd people that reject everyone else’s opinion and are doing what he or she feels is their call.
.
For him, the artwork is the reward for having listened to the inner call of one’s imagination and traveled on a journey to the unknown. It is this operative link between imagination and the final result that gives value to art.

Artist Eriberto Oriol
by Angelica

There is a certain kind of freedom that comes from madness.  With civilization come the rules and regulations.  Who is really free? Who are the normal people; those who are free to act on their instincts and desires; or those who are ruled by regulations and expectations?

In his paintings, drawings, and sculptures, Eriberto projects his emotions through color, line, and expression with more of an international flare from inspirations that comes from great art from Asia, Africa and Mesoamerica.

Like much of his work, in his drawing “Freaked Out,” it is a juxtaposition of color, line and shapes. The color pink in the background juxtaposed with the dark scribble of his main character, shows how bewildered and out of place this character seems to be.  He is in an urban setting that is almost frightening, as would be a large window cracking and breaking into pieces.
 
He has various styles in his art.  For him, is not about concept; it’s a pause to share feelings about common experiences. His characters are often missing the real structure of what is supposed to be a full body and often all you see are the souls and essence of emotions.  It’s hard for Eriberto to try to give meaning or interpretation to his work, as he just seems to be a vessel for these inspirations.
 
The shading in his drawings are not to give the drawings three dimension but it is just there for character and texture.
Born and raised in the United States he sometimes paints from themes that flow from memories, with various painting styles, impressions from his subconscious and experiences.

Take the right RISK in art collecting


By Angelica Oriol at ForbiddenArtLA.com

What are the risks in collecting art?  “What Makes Art Valuable?”

These are two of the most burning questions that resonate with some artists and gallery professionals. Listed below are some of the resources I used in my quest to find the answers to these questions. This is what I found out.

One,  “Art collecting” is not for everyone – you have to LOVE the art, have passion for the work and have it resonate with you, the collector. These are the main reasons to invest in art. Most collect art to enrich their life.  For some art collectors it is the “Ultimate Luxury” especially for some wanting to surround themselves with the very BEST. It is usually not as a financial investment.

In the art world “Provenance” the history of ownership and who else collects the artist’s work, can send the price of the artwork to skyrocket. See who is collecting Eriberto Oriol’s work below.

Some of the art collectors are just concern as to how their peers see them and their art collection. Some mainly cared about how they are going to be remembered. Maybe as “the one” who discovered or were the first to see the genius in the artist or artwork collected.

Another question in looking at artwork; does the artist “Use the Force?”  Is it contrived creativity or is it madness that the artist listens and uses their inner creative spirit?” In the art world, you sometimes see people with great illustrating skills; that get an idea and they put it on canvas, but they don’t allow “The Force” with-in to guide them.  Resulting sometimes in a collage of ideas that don’t mesh. Sometimes missing the magic of the connection with the dynamic universal creative spirit

There is a certain kind of freedom that comes from madness. With civilization come the rules and regulations. Who is really free? Who are the normal people; those who are free to act on their instincts and desires; or those who are ruled by regulations and expectations?

Artist, Eriberto Oriol, is not interested in following the rules and schools of art.  In his paintings and drawings, Eriberto speaks with his own voice. Projecting his emotions through color, line and expression with more of an international flare from inspirations that comes from great art from Asia, Africa and Mesoamerica.

Born and raised in the United States he sometimes paints from themes that flow from memories, with various painting styles, impressions from his subconscious and experiences.

Get to know more of artist Eriberto Oriol in: ForbiddenArtLA.com – it features Eriberto’s art and asks you to “Define your STYLE with ART.”

Eriberto has been published globally, including with Taschen Publisher, Juxtapoz Magazine, LA Times, LA Weekly, 38 Timez Japan, Drago Publishing, Warp Japan and The San Francisco Chronicle to name a few.

In an art review by top L A Times art critic, William Wilson called him a people’s aesthete.  L A WEEKLY named and featured Eriberto as a “Local Hero” for his work at the Pico House.
