Williams' home in Shreveport was filled with paintings
 from wall to wall.
  Chuckie "Artist Chuckie" Williams (1957 - 1999)

"Artist Chuckie" Williams began drawing at an early age and continued to produce art throughout his life.   His favorite subjects were celebrities -- television talk show hosts, music video stars, athletes, and the like.  Using found materials, he created double-sided portraits in bold colors, often with added glitter, on large pieces of plywood and cardboard.  He died at age 42 at home in Shreveport, Louisiana.

Our main inventory of photos is divided into three sections.   Please follow these links to view photos. See below for a special collection of Chuck Williams portraits of Michael Jackson, Jackson family members, and friends.
