Richard Orlinski is a French sculptor whose works are designed around the concept of “Born Wild” in which the artists seeks to transform negative impulses into positive emotions. Born in Paris, Orlinski attended the National School of Fine Arts in Neuilly-sur-Seine, where he decided to become a sculptor. Inspired by the conventions of Pop Art and New Realism, he works largely with industrial materials, such as resin and aluminum, as well as marble, stone, and bronze. His favorite subjects include monumental and decorative animals, often drawing comparisons to Jeff Koons and Robert Indiana. Since 2010, he has been ranked among the top 10 best-selling French artists in the world by Art Price.
