What does it mean to be a Genius?

.

To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all men, — that is genius.  Ralph Waldo Emerson

.

.

In today’s society full of noisy distractions, how does one find their true genius?  What prevents a person from embracing the wisdom of ancient great civilizations?

.

In this painting “Civilizations” the artist Eriberto Oriol seems to be embracing and celebrating the symbols of ancient civilizations that have influenced him and his art . .

.

.

His work bares influences of his father’s appreciation for the natural environment, Mesoamerica roots, love for African art and the Japanese influence that came from working as a young man with gardeners and landscapers .

Eriberto believes that art retains a primal spirit, which allows him to go beyond himself.

.

.

He hopes that his work will help others to detect their own gleam of light? Imagine the Un-imaginable and to encourage them to see the contributions and achievements of other great civilizations . .

Are you an artist without style?


Picasso once said: “When I think about it, I’d say I’m an artist without style. Style puts constraints on the artist …” Picasso had many different styles, i.e. he had his Blue Period, African Period, Cubism and others.

Eriberto also has several styles in his art and he does not limit his creativity to his art.
If you have been a guest in Eriberto Oriol’s studio, you would know that for him; a taco is not just a taco.
It’s like he sometimes says, “Life is about meditating with your eyes open and allowing the imagination to take you where it may. Eriberto allows his creative mind to reflect on his paintings, drawings, photos, cooking and his life.
Some say, “Where there is light, there is a dream.” For an artist, sustainability through their art is the Dream.
In this photo, the artist Eriberto Oriol is holding his painting “Hung-over” and his sculpture “La Familia/The Family” is next to him on the wall.

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

“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.
