Richard Orlinski is a French sculptor specializing in contemporary design. His figurines are often of wildlife beasts, using colorful design to sculpt crocodiles, bears, and a gorilla entitled “Wild Kong.” His work is displayed at the FIAC in Courchevel and 90 galleries worldwide. His signature “Born Wild” ethos conveys a freedom of spirit, happiness and positive emotion. Citing Robert Indiana as one of his most influential inspirations, Orlinski was recognized in 2015 by ArtPrice as the best contemporary artist in France.
Orlinski carefully chooses the subjects of his sculptures to reflect the ethos of BornWild, with his motifs conveying a visual language for the viewer to absorb. His panther sculpture encapsulates the sensuality of movement and mystic of the cat, while his crocodile piece embodies human instinct of adaptability and survival mode, dating from the Mesozoic era. His elephant sculpture is figurative for a duality in the wild; while the elephant is an animal fiercely protected by anti-poaching activists and is known for its indelible memory, human-like tenderness and long lives. However, it is also a creature capable of violent rampages when provoked.
Orlinski’s sculptures consist of impressive texture and various media, from stone to marble, bronze, and industrial resin.
