Have you ever seen a FLOWER that is NAKED?


"Naked Flowers" by Eriberto Oriol

“Naked Flowers” by Eriberto Oriol

There are times that we are like beautiful naked flowers, vulnerable, delicate, and exposed. In times like this, maybe all we need is to be heard, understood or just to be held.

For some, life can be ferocious, especially when one is trying so hard to follow ones’ dream. “Do I have what it takes to withstand the storm? Am I enough?” one may ask.

Only to be told, “Forget it, just think positive and don’t talk about it!”

Not being able to talk about it might be one of the worst parts about being stressed or depressed. And if you do talk about it, some will be asking, “What is wrong with you? Why are you so negative?”

In this series of paintings, ‘FLOWERS are NAKED’ artist Eriberto Oriol has exaggerated some of the sexual icons in hope that they startle one into questioning the role that society plays in defining social roles and the rules it imposes.

For Eriberto, there is no absolute right or wrong. For him, to slay the Dragon that is within us is to listen to the wisdom of the heart and to have strength and courage to choose not to live by other peoples’ rules.

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.

Take the right RISK in art collecting


By Angelica Oriol at ForbiddenArtLA.com

What are the risks in collecting art?  “What Makes Art Valuable?”

These are two of the most burning questions that resonate with some artists and gallery professionals. Listed below are some of the resources I used in my quest to find the answers to these questions. This is what I found out.

One,  “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.

In the art world “Provenance” the history of ownership and who else collects the artist’s work, can send the price of the artwork to skyrocket. See who is collecting Eriberto Oriol’s work below.

Some of the art collectors are just concern as to how their peers see them and their art collection. Some mainly cared about how they are going to be remembered. Maybe as “the one” who discovered or were the first to see the genius in the artist or artwork collected.

Another question in looking at artwork; does the artist “Use the Force?”  Is it contrived creativity or is it madness that the artist listens and uses their inner creative spirit?” In the art world, you sometimes see people with great illustrating skills; that get an idea and they put it on canvas, but they don’t allow “The Force” with-in to guide them.  Resulting sometimes in a collage of ideas that don’t mesh. Sometimes missing the magic of the connection with the dynamic universal creative spirit

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?

Artist, Eriberto Oriol, is not interested in following the rules and schools of art.  In his paintings and drawings, Eriberto speaks with his own voice. Projecting 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.

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.

Eriberto has been published globally, including with Taschen Publisher, Juxtapoz Magazine, LA Times, LA Weekly, 38 Timez Japan, Drago Publishing, Warp Japan and The San Francisco Chronicle to name a few.
