- KAWS FOUR FOOT COMPANION 1 of 100 (Painted cast vinyl – Executed in 2007 – 127 x 55.9 x 35.6 cm).
Brian Donnelly, known professionally as Kaws, is an American artist and designer. Kaws’ sculptures range in size from a few inches to ten meters tall and are made from various materials including fiberglass, aluminum, wood, bronze, and a steel pontoon inflatable raft. Kaws’ influences come from traditional high art painters like Gerhard Richter, Claes Oldenburg, and Chuck Close, and he has been compared to the likes of Andy Warhol for his cross-market appeal and ability to blur lines between commercial and fine art. His work is exhibited in galleries and museums, held in the permanent collections of public institutions, and avidly collected by individuals including music producer Swizz Beatz, internet figure PewDiePie, rappers Pharrell Williams and Kid Cudi, and members of South Korean group BTS.
- DANIEL ARSHAM VEILED PORSCHE (Plexiglass, hydrostone, plaster, paint 66 × 152.4 × 76.2 cm).
Daniel Arsham is one of the most influential artists of our time with his brand of deconstructed futurism. Arsham succeeds in breathing new life into everyday objects, experimenting with structure and examining his matter from a historical perspective. He confuses and confounds the expectations of recipients in terms of shapes and design, providing insights into a world where the past, present, and future can co-exist.
As a child, Daniel Arsham spent his time drawing sneakers, cameras, and various Porsche models, in particular the legendary 911 Turbo. It became a passion that has accompanied him ever since – and provided the American artist with a source of inspiration for many of his pieces.

Decades later, these striking works have sold for more than $500,000.

- RICHARD ORLINSKI – WILD KONG OIL TAG (125cm)
Smarter than man, Wild Kong by Richard Orlinski throws an oil drum. The gigantic gorilla from Skull Island is a Hollywood legend that reigned over a hostile natural environment packed with prehistoric animals. It can protect species and live among them. Wild King Oil understands the dangers of pollution and uses its strength to end its plague on the planet.
Richard Orlinski has been the biggest selling contemporary French artist in the world since 2015. He began his artistic career in 2004 and created his first work, a bright red resin crocodile, which soon became an iconic piece in the sculptor’s bestiary.
The artist took inspiration from pop culture, everyday objects, popular things. Richard Orlinski soon developed new sculptures, often of animals, all symbols of freedom, power and passion. The result: electrifying works of art, in pop colours and a faceted style, that would be seen all around the world. Exhibiting his works, often of spectacular dimensions, in unusual places and the great outdoors soon became his signature.
He was made an Officer for the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French Minister of Culture Roselyne Bachelot-Narquin in 2021.
