Richard Orlinski is a French artist who was born in Paris in 1966. In 2004 he started to make sculptures and has always been surrounded by a team of highly skilled technicians. His artworks, designed with the concept “Born Wild” reflect his main values in a contemporary style, which never yields to the trash, the extravagance or the ephemeral.
His works touch a wide audience, including children fascinated by his iconic creations. Orlinski has been guest of honour at Art Elysées Fair, Art Paris Fair, Artiferia in Bologna and Cannes, Deauville and Cabourg Festival.
In 2010 he was the second best-selling contemporary French artist in France according to Art Price and two of his artworks were among the 10 highest auction peices of 2011
Richard Orlinski sculpts to sublimate reality and create living, beautiful and timeless artworks that arouse emotion in the public’s eyes. Richard Orlinski mainly uses contemporary materials such as resin and aluminum, but also marble, stone and bronze.
Through the concept “Born Wild”, Richard Orlinski transforms negative vital impulses into positive emotions, to pass from primordial instinct to civilized emotion. The vectors of this metamorphosis are the aesthetics of the work, the quest of perfection and the viewer’s perception. Orlinski thinks that art is accessible to everybody; he creates works of art that act on our impulses, our archaisms.
