Description / Interpretation: 

This portrait of Eriberto Oriol is painted in Man One's signature style and is part of his "Faces LA" campaign.  The purpose of this mural series is to use the power of public art and his own unique use of color and style of portraiture to showcase individuals who serve their communities in important and in important and influential ways, yet often go without recognition and may be unknown by their fellow citizens across the LA basin.  


Born in Indio, CA, Eriberto Oriol grew up in the San Diego neighborhood of Barrio Logan before relocating to Los Angeles, his home now for over three decades. In addition to expanding his internationally recognized portfolio of photographs of LA Latino street life, street art and graffiti, a talent he would later pass down to son Estevan, he and wife Angelica Gonzalez-Oriol are enthusiastic, proactive supporters of the local art scene, which led them to curate the first major exhibition of graffiti art in Los Angeles in 1989. In addition to the recognition the Oriols received from the Los Angeles City Council for the show’s contribution to the community and the praise from numerous media outlets, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles acquired a featured artwork for its permanent collection.
