Are we DANCING with a MAD MAN?


This artwork “HAPPY HOUR in DANTE’s INFERNO” by Eriberto Oriol

Eriberto has been activist for a long time and when the social political climate seems like “We are Dancing with a Mad Man” what does a series artist do? 

It is said, “A musician must make music, an artist must paint, and a poet must write if he is to be at peace with himself.” Abraham Maslow

For Eriberto, he must paint.

 

It takes courage to walk through the unbeaten path, especially in a society full of noisy distractions. For Eriberto that is his challenge. How does he use his ingenuity in looking at the world and continue to stay committed to creating his art?

So if you have a passion for art and are wide eye looking for something extraordinary, visit his BLOG ForbiddenArtLA.com. to see more of Eriberto’s artwork.

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.

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.

"Civilizations"

“Civilizations”

He seems to be projecting his influences through shape, form, color, bold lines and texture.

 

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.

 

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. He 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.
