Arto Lindsay (born 1953, Richmond, Virginia) is an American guitarist, singer, record producer and experimental composer.He has a distinctive soft voice and an often noisy, self-taught guitar style comprised almost entirely of extended techniques, his guitar work is contrasted frequently with gentler, sensuous Brazilian music themes.  

With Diego Cortez— who would become the artistic director for all his solo endeavours starting in the mid 1990s — Lindsay became immersed in an art community that included Jean-Michel Basquiat, Nan Goldin, Francesco Clemente and Andy Warhol. Since then, Lindsay has included the work of Goldin, Kara Walker, Matthew Barney, Philip Taffe and Frédéric Bruly Bouabré on his albums.  

In April 2008 Arto Lindsay invented a parade "I AM A MAN" in Frankfurt. The parade included a dog parade. In the Ladonia biennial he is using elephants as parade material – together with his soft guitar and voice. An important inspiration is of course the tradition in Ladonia to celebrate the National Day (June 2nd) with an elephant parade.
