Richard Orlinski is a French sculptor. He was born in Paris in 1966. He studied at the National School of Fine Arts in Neuilly-sur-Seine, then chose to devote himself to sculpture.

He now explores the medium of sculpture using industrial materials which he embellishes with references to the Pop Art movement which nourished his childhood and has continued to improve his work. His preferred materials are resin and aluminum used in the foundry process. His art is far from conventions, but close to his time. Richard Orlinski is one of those artists who claim to belong to a contemporary art which, by industrial means, wants to create works that question the codes of perception of our consumer society. Following a logic of multiplication and repetition, he condemns the logic of mass production in the cultural industry.

From his favorite object, the crocodile, to more rigorous works, Richard Orlinski offers a panorama of what Contemporary Art can present. Questioning society's perception of Contemporary Art by creating works that play on different levels: visual impact, popular iconography, the notion of human instinct, and at the same time revisiting the History of Art.

So many ways to underline the question of the impact of Contemporary Art on the public space and the perception of the public, art collectors or the uninitiated.
