About Wild Kong Red – Edition of 50
Part of the contemporary French Pop Art artist Richard Orlinski’s Born Wild© concept, Wild Kong Red reinterprets the iconic figure of popular culture, King Kong in this limited edition of only 50 chromed resin Wild Kong Red Sculptures. Orlinski’s Born Wild© concept emerges as the artist’s attempt to successfully capture deep-rooted animalistic wild instincts and transform them into civilized emotions manifested as beautifully seductive works of art. The menacing gorilla’s open mouth with fangs and beating chest stand in juxtaposition to the hypnotizing diamond-cut like angles of the sculpture, the vibrancy of its color and the polished reflective quality of its surface.

About Richard Orlinski
Born in January 19, 1966 the multi-faceted French contemporary artist Richard Orlinski’s awakened interest for the arts was sparked after visiting a Contemporary Art exhibition which motivated him to study the works of the great masters in the history of art. Influenced by the works of artists like Robert Montana, Takashi Murakami, Jeff Koons and others, in 2002 Orlinski decided abandoned his career as an interior designer/designer and invest his efforts into becoming an artist working restlessly for around 2 years. Orlinski artistic talent and discipline reaped immediate success by allowing him to later exhibit in world-renowned galleries and venues such as Fiac, Art Élysées, Art Basel, Le Château de Versailles. In 2011, the world’s leading online art price database, ArtPrice identified Richard Orlinski as one of the top 10 best selling French artists in the world and since 2015 he is ranked first. As a way of challenging elitism in art Richard Orlinski ingeniously represents in his sculptures immediately recognizable subjects such as animals or figures of popular culture, through the use of industrial materials resin, used in this limited edition Wild Kong Red sculpture.
