From archaic instinct to a civilized emotion Richard Orlinski’s artistic purpose is to engage in making art accessible to all. Orlinski transforms negative emotions into positive vital impulses by drawing on wild animal imagery. Orlinski uses industrial materials such as resin and aluminum but also uses marble, stone, and bronze. He works only with contrasting or vibrant colors and he manages to exacerbate the brilliance and dullness of the materials.


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.
