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.

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.

Some say, “Where there is light, there is a dream.” For an artist, sustainability through their art is the Dream.

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?

 

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.
 
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.

Underground – METRO – Los Angeles
“Historical and Spectacular.”
Red Line to the Civic Center: https://eribertooriol.wordpress.com/underground-metro/ by Eriberto Oriol.

Until the posting we did on these photos recently, few have seen these photos. They are amazing and a great insight into the process of excavating and making the dream of the Los Angeles metro underground a reality. They are the historical and spectacular.

When Eriberto was down there taking the photos, he was amazed; it was a totally different world. It reminded Eriberto of Dante’s poem, The Divine Comedy and the descent to the underworld. Eriberto also has photos of the Gold Line.
