About Richard Orlinski
At the early age of eighteen years old, after visiting a Contemporary art exhibition Richard Orlinski’s interest in studying the great masters of painting and sculpture in the history of art was suddenly awakened. However, it was in 2002 that Orlinski decided to devote himself to creating art and abandon his career as a designer/interior designer and began to work diligently for two years before his exhibition debut in 2004. Orlinski’s determination was rewarded by his immediate success, granting him the opportunity to exhibit his works at important world leading galleries and venues including, Fiac, Art Élysées, Art Basel, Le Château de Versailles, among others. Soon Orlinski’s works began to reach new records and entered major collections throughout the world, awarding Orlinski with the title of the Best-Selling French Contemporary Artist in the world since 2015 according to ArtPrice, the world’s leading online art price database. Influenced by artists like Jeff Koons, Takashi Murami and Robert Montana, Orlinski through his appropriation of popular culture iconography in his works, he strives to make art accessible to a variety of audiences while he comments on our present-day society’s consumerism through his use of industrial materials.
