Chuckie Williams

Self-taught Outsider Artist ,"Artist Chuckie" Williams , born in 1957, lived at home with his mother in Shreveport.until his death at the age of 42 a number of years ago..
His art has been exhibited all over the USA and in many prestigious collections.
The "ghost talent" (as he sometimes called himself) had painted since childhood....mostly pop culture icons.

Using found materials, he created double-sided portraits on plywood and cardboard in bold colors, often with added glitter.
He created many paintings-- but mostly his favorite subjects were celebrities -- television talk show hosts, music video stars, and athletes.
He said, "Janet and Michael (Jackson), they're my favorites. And Oprah and Michael Jordan."
These paintings by Artist Chuckie are great tributes to many celebrities including “The King of Pop” , an icon of 1980's popular culture who himself was an avid collector of everything from fine, often kitchy art and antiques to prized entertainment and pop culture memorabilia. the King of Pop may have even owned one of Chuckie William's portraits.
