"Paul Villinski was born and raised in Maine before moving to New York City in 1982. He received a BFA from the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in 1984.
A pilot of sailplanes and paragliders himself, Villinski includes many indications of soaring flight in his sculptures. His concern for environmental issues is reflected in hia materials—discarded items re-purposed in surprising and poetic ways.
Villinski has won a National Endowment for the Arts grant and numerous art residencies. His work has been exhibited in galleries nationwide, including recently Museum of Arts and Design in New York and Prospect 1 International Art Biennial in New Orleans."
