Born in 1967 in Paris, the son of German artists, Orson grew up on the island of Formentera from 1970 to 1982. After that he returned to Paris to finish his studies, and still lives there. His first solo exhibition was held in New York, in 1988. He has since exhibited in France, Germany and Spain.
In addition to his paintings, inspired by a trip to Senegal, he creates sculptures from tin cans since many years, representing animals with the minimum intervention of materials, respecting part of the original object.
