Pop Hippo by Richard Orlinski
Richard Orlinski is the best selling French contemporary artist in the world. His sculptures are designed around the theme, Born Wild, and reflect a deep reflection on animal instincts and human nature.
After having worked as an architect and interior designer when he started his career, Richard Orlinski decided in 2002 to devote himself fully to art. He left his job and worked hard for two years before revealing his first series of sculptures in 2004. His work became quickly noticed among the art community.
Orlinski reached record levels with collectors worldwide. His art can be seen in over 90 galleries around the world and has been featured in shows such as Art Elysées, FIAC and Art Basel. Richard Orlinski has been among the TOP 10 best selling French artists in the world since 2011 according to Artprice and has ranked first since 2015.
Nevertheless Richard Orlinski wants to make art accessible to the masses and exhibits his larger than life sized sculptures in public parks or cities. Whether it is at the top of the slopes like in Courchevel or Val d’Isères in the French Alps or in cities like Paris or Saulieu, he likes to settle in atypical places in order to meet the audience.
