Did you kill the song?

 

When you kill the bird, you kill the song. As it would be, when you kill the person’s spirit you kill the soul and their song.
.

In this painting, “The Ravages of Greed and Power,” the artist
Eriberto Oriol seems to capture the characters’ pain and anguish of their dying souls.
.

He hopes that these powerful characters startle people out of their daily routine and question the sanity of greed and power.
.

Most of the time Eriberto does not want these faces to come in his paintings. He prefers that he could just paint without the psychological trips.
.

Why do artists do this? El Greco felt that the spirits whispered madly in his ears. For artists like Francis Bacon and Edvard Munch, some felt that their disturbing paintings were a sign of madness and that these artists were completely off the wall.
.

Eriberto feels it is a privilege to have the unique distinction of being an artist that allows him to see the world that is not always obvious.
.

His dream is that the sky would get bluer, that the birds would start to sing again, and the glaciers stop melting.
.
In Spanish we say, “El Sueno del artista, es que el cielo se vuelva mas azul, los pajaros comienzen a cantar de nuevo, y los glaciares dejen de derretirese.
