Richard Orlinski is a contemporary French Pop artist. He crafts his colorful sculptures in accordance with his signature “Born Wild” ethos of living positively. Influenced by Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami, and Robert Indiana, Orlinski renders popular iconography such as skulls, King Kong, and Superman as polished, monochromatic totems made from industrial materials. “In each sculpture I have already made I tried to put a symbol telling a story. Nothing is there by random or only for decoration,” he said of his work. “For example, the Wild Kong Oil reject humans actions on earth.” Born on January 19, 1966 in Paris, France, Orlinski studied at the National School of Fine Arts in Neuilly-sur-Seine. He currently lives and works in the city of his birth.
