Arthur Wilinski is a visual artist based in San Francisco. His films have been hailed as pioneers of “Exquisite Corpse” filmmaking by Variety and The New York Times and his sculptures are on exhibit in museums and venues worldwide.
In 1996, Wilinski founded Shotwell Film, a San Francisco art and design production house. Shotwell quickly became the destination for independent film and production art in San Francisco. His first feature film, “The Orange Thief,” was shot on location in Sicily. It received widespread critical acclaim and won audience awards at both the 2006 Mill Valley and Woodstock Film Festivals (among many others). Wilinski has exhibited his three-dimensional work at NY MOMO (PS1), the St. Louis Museum of Contemporary Art and the 2012 Whitney Biennial.
Arthur's second film, "Legend of Tango Kid" is to be released in the fall of 2019.
