“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.

Los Angeles Underground Metro


Eriberto Oriol gets cover Spring issue
THESE STREETS Magazine

For photographer Eriberto Oriol, being down in the bowels of the city was an incredible experience. Damp and dim except where the rays of light were able to pass through a passage above here and there, might be like to enter Dante’s 9 circles of hell.
.
He almost got decapitated when the cable pulling the drilling caterpillar machine snapped and whizzed by a couple of inches away from his head.

He is amazed at the ingenuity it took to build the whole underground Metro system and pleased that “These Streets” magazine selected his Los Angeles Underground Metro series for the cover and some of the photos to be featured in the Spring 2020 issue.
.
Eriberto feels great to be in the company of talented artists featured in the magazine including his son Estevan Oriol.

“The Forgotten?” by Eriberto Oriol

The beauty of this series is the spontaneity and characters that seem to reflect bewilderment from the incoherence 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.

“What is Going on?” is part of the Crazy Sauce / Salsa Loca is a series of new works by artist Eriberto Oriol. He sees being an artist as a privilege to be able to express the magic of his imagination through his work.

The beauty of this series is the spontaneity and freedom he expresses in his stokes and color pallet. The characters seem to reflect the bewilderment of the incoherent madness of events that are part of our contemporary life in a world of politics, economics and environmental crisis.

Are we Dancing with a Madman?


For artists like Eriberto, they do not set out to paint these images, nor try to find meaning in the symbolism of the images or choice of colors, yet they seem to hold powerful meanings.

He feels it is a privilege to have the unique distinction of being an artist that allows him to see a world that is not always obvious and hopes that “Dancing with a Madman” series help others to detect their own gleam of light.

Art Review by Julie Rico on artist Eriberto Oriol


 

 

 

Julie Rico is an amuse and has had her own galleries representing many artists including: Jean Jacques Bastarache, Salomon Huerta, Treiops, Ed Big Daddy Roth, Stanley Mouse, Bill Plympton, Lama Lhanang, Mark Bryan, Dennis Larkins, Craig Stecyk, Robert Williams, Patssi Valdez, Diane Gamboa, Timothy Leary, Michael McMillan, Kai Bob Cheng, Ray Zone, Von Dutch, Einar and Jamex de la Torre, Brian Tortora and about 100 or more artists.

 

 

 

 

Eriberto is a Los Angeles based painter he creates work with a Latin world ethos. A confluence of European and Indigenous Indian cultures.

The term “Cosmic Race”, is brought to mind in this work, coined by Jose Vasconcelos a Mexican philosopher. Vasconcelos believed that nationality and race is transcended by Latin Americans with their Asian-descended native Americans, European and African heritage. You can see in Oriol’s work the same kind of merging of cultures.

 

Dante's Inferno painting by Eriberto Oriol

Dante’s Inferno painting by Eriberto Oriol

 

Oriol provides us a reflection of the indigenous dream like state. The dreams that brought wisdom and guidance to the tribe were achieved with the ceremonial use of alkaloids such as Peyote or Ayahuasca. The skillful interpretation that Mr. Oriol achieves in his work reflects the forces of the universe as it affects our collective journey into the unconscious. At the same time the colors the painting techniques emphasize European influences.

The work is not easy. Like Picasso’s Guernica that shows the tragedy of war. The internal struggle is what is emphasized in Mr. Oriol’s work. We feel the power we have within ourselves with this work.

Many of the works are clearly phallic. Just prior to the sexual revolution in the 60’s and 70’s American art was overly affected by Christian values of the Puritans. The phallus was usually hidden not exposed as in Mr. Oriol’s paintings. The sexual revolution allowed the phallus to show up in sculptures and other contemporary art. Look at work by Louise Bourgeois and Andy Warhol. Surely, this affected Mr. Oriol a product of that time.

But let’s go back even further to pre-Columbian times where we see references to the phallus as an important cultural icon to the indigenous populations all over the world. The influences of pre-Columbian art cannot be denied in this work. The paintings are not always pleasant. They are; however, wondrous and terrifying and beautiful portraying dream likes states of mind.

As was the intention of the Indigenous their dreams were meant to help the community at large. It is the same with Mr. Oriol’s work. He may want us to see the hidden power of our animal nature. As witnesses to our hidden power in the paintings, will we be overcome the angst, the sometimes powerlessness we feel in our daily lives. The power of the phallus is in our DNA, we cannot separate ourselves from our animal nature. Contemplation is key to our understanding of our place here in the world. Mr. Oriol’s paintings help us see an inner world.
