Richard Orlinski is a French artist born in 1966 in Paris. Right from the start, he surrounded himself with a team of highly qualified technicians. His works of art, designed around the "Born Wild" concept, testify to essential values in a resolutely contemporary style, which never yields to trash, extravagance or the ephemeral.
His works reach a wide audience, including children fascinated by his iconic creations. He was guest of honor at Art Elysées, at Art Paris, at the Artiferia in Bologna, at the Cannes, Deauville and Cabourg festivals.
In 2010, he was ranked second best-selling contemporary French artist in France by Art Price and two of his works were among the 10 highest auctions of 2011.
Richard Orlinski sculpts to sublimate reality and create living, beautiful and timeless works of art that arouse emotion in the eyes of others. Deeply rooted in his time, Richard Orlinski mainly uses contemporary materials such as resin and aluminium, but also marble, stone and bronze.
Richard Orlinski's challenge through the "Born Wild" concept is to transform negative vital impulses into positive emotions, to move from primordial instinct to civilized emotion. The vectors of this metamorphosis are the aesthetics of the work, the sculptor's quest for perfection and the viewer's perception. A supporter of art accessible to all, Richard Orlinski draws from the popular imagery of icons that serve his purpose. He creates works of art that act on our impulses, on our archaisms.
