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.

Imagination, is it Madness?


The painting “Into the Night,” seems to be a psychological journey of the human condition.

They say that some of the most powerful works of art emerge from the artist’s darkest moments and when an artist is pushing the envelope; for some, the work may appear to be shocking.

 

Eriberto’s work has a unique artistic vocabulary. His characters seemed to be looking with curiosity and seem to be haunting moments of human life and in a sort of apocalyptic flare showing the basic fears encountered by most people.

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?

As an artist, Eriberto Oriol, is not interested in following the rules and schools of art. He feels that humanity has been bestowed with great gifts; perhaps the greatest of them all is imagination because it has the power to change the world.

 

Some say, “Where there is light, there is a dream.” For an artist, sustainability through their art is the Dream.

The magic and power of the imagination is what 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 Makes Art Valuable?”


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

Cosmic Creativity?

In his paintings, Eriberto Oriol’s characters are often missing the real structure of what is supposed to be a full body and often all you see are interactions of the shapes, color and texture.

 

Eriberto does not want to be pigeonhole in ONE style. It is hard at times to have the unique distinction of being an artist, but Eriberto sees it as a privilege to be able to express the magic of his imagination.

 

Projecting his emotions through color, line, his work has more of an international flair from inspirations that comes from great art from Asia, Africa and Mesoamerica.

What is Eriberto Oriol’s FOCUS now?


Eriberto is painting.

In some his painting, the images do not always reflect the real structure of what is supposed to be a full body.   What you see in some of his work is the intertwined and interactions of shapes, color, and texture.
