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 of a team of highly skilled technicians. His artworks, designed with the concept "Born Wild" reflect the 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 honor 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's in France by Art Price and two of his artworks are among the 10 highest auctions of 2011. Richard Orlinski sculpts to sublimate reality and creates 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. The challenge of Richard Orlinski through the concept "Born Wild" is about transforming negative vital impulses to 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.
