CANCER: Stage 4


 

In this artwork, artist Eriberto Oriol captured the intense emotions that I was going through at the time when I found out that I had breast cancer. Nothing prepares one for moments like these.

This was back in August 1994. I kept asking myself questions like, “What did I do to get this cancer? What do I do now? Why me?”

I remembered a therapist saying to me, “Angelica get a hold of yourself, the fear of cancer will kill you sooner than cancer.” I said to myself, “That is easy for her to say.” But she was right.

They say that some of the most powerful works of art emerge from an artist’s darkest moments. In this piece, you can see the strength in Eriberto’s art.

 

 

He was able to capture the intensity of emotions and sheer determination to live in those eyes – all my emotions are on and running!

In much of Eriberto’s work, it is in his characters that seem to reflect haunting moments of human life that resonate the fears and emotions most experience.

His work also shows the strength, tenacity, and integrity of his character as a human being and as an artist.

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.

What is Eriberto Oriol up to NOW? By Angelica


Eriberto is painting.

"Caras y Panochas"

As a photographer, Eriberto has garnished considerable success. Now he is focusing on his painting, drawings and sculpture.

 

His work has more of an international flair as his inspirations come from great art from Asia, Africa and Mesoamerica.

 

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.
