Usually considered to be one of the highest-selling contemporary French artists in the world, Richard Orlinski infinitely uses his “Born Wild” concept. A neighing horse, a menacing King Kong, a purring feline: all of it fits into a resolutely contemporary and timeless style. This is the Richard Orlinski touch, in just a few words. Opting for democratic art that is accessible to all, this 51 year old artist offers graphic works influenced by pop art and popular imagery. To do this, Orlinski doesn’t hesitate to play with colors and fabrics. Resin in a multitude of colors remains one of his signature touches, although the artist also works with rock crystal, glass, aluminum, marble, stone, bronze, steel, or other precious metals such as gold.
