Using found or recycled materials from his own collection the artist main subject is butterflies. He creates them from items such as used records and also beer cans. He often employs the butterflies as a group engaging in an activity such as transporting a plane, or coming together to create a certain shape with the negative space created by the group.

For his artistic education Villinski attended the Massachusetts College of Art located in Boston, Massachusetts. He went on to earn a bachelor of fine arts degree from Cooper Union College located in New York City.
