Arthur Wilinski is a visual artist and design engineer based in Milwaukee, WI.  His films have been hailed as pioneers of “Exquisite Corpse” film making by Variety and The New York Times.  His design and engineering has been utilized by silicone valley companies and through countless applications in both the film and entertainment industries.  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 was released by Warner Brothers in 2008. He has exhibited his three-dimensional work at NY MOMO (PS1), the St. Louis Museum of Contemporary Art and the 2012 Whitney Biennial.

Moving his complete studio from San Francisco to Milwaukee in 2019 marked a new dedication to motion control and stop motion animation in his work.  He is currently developing new methods of photography and the hardware surrounding it to re-examine the art.

Arthur's second film, "Legend of Tango Kid" is to be released in the fall of 2021.
