About the book
LA Woman is Estevan Oriol’s homage to the women of Los Angeles. They are the cutting edge silent ambassadors of a new style that is not at all centred on WASP culture. They are Los Angeles and they would not be the same without Los Angeles in their blood.
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.
Select galleries that have exhibited Eriberto’s work to date include Carmichael Gallery, Los Angeles, Chinese American Museum of Los Angeles, Crewest Gallery, Los Angeles and Anno Domini, San Jose, while commercial projects have ranged from work for the NBA, Nike, Vans and T Mobil to Jokerbrand, LA Metro, Altamont Apparel and Warner Bros. In addition to featuring in Los Angeles: Portrait of a City (Kevin Starr, David L. Ulin, Jim Heimann, TASCHEN Books, 2009), Eriberto and his work have been profiled in The Los Angeles Times, LA Weekly, Daily Telegraph, Downtown News – Los Angeles, Vogue Australia, Mass Appeal, tasj magazine, Swindle, Thrasher, Hypebeast, Rebel Ink, Juxtapoz, Oversight, Warp, Scratch, Rime, Fader Magazine, TCLY (thecitylovesyou.com), Format Magazine and Freshness Mag, amongst numerous other national and international print and online media outlets. He currently lives and works in Los Angeles.
