About

Chellboy brings a wide variety of artistic expressions and a unique artistic vision

Chellboy was born in Cincinnati, and first took up photography -- another of his passions -- at Princeton High School, following up with studies at Ohio State University.

He has created musical collages with the bands S&M and Terminal Inhale. The Cincinnati boutique God Save the Queen bought his entire Mutant Babies collection in 1996, and the following year his works appeared in auction at Tye Ravin, in historic Covington, Kentucky’s arts district-- and was featured in the Kentucky Enquirer.

That year Chellboy did commissioned works for Cincinnatians Barbara Vaughn and Dan Stephen -- he has painted a number of portraits and figurative works.

Chellboy was also a guest artist at the Cincinnati Public Schools, where he taught children to make art from recyclable materials.

In 1998 The Cincinnati Art Museum commissioned him to design voodoo dolls for a Mardi Gras fundraiser.

Chellboy moved to Memphis in the summer of 2000. The Boys and Girls Club of Memphis chose his work among four pieces for its Christmas card collection in 2001.

Working with the City’s after schools programs, Chellboy helped kids create animation shorts for the Memphis Arts Council’s Project Soar, as he expanded his artistic repertoire to include digital video production.

He went on to teach art at the Memphis Black Arts Alliance Arts A Fire summer camp in 2002.

In 2003 his debut video work was a 75th birthday retrospective, complete with live and recorded music, which met with an overwhelming and emotional response at its premiere that December.

Chellboy designed flyers for Ophelia Ford’s Senate campaign and Harold Ford, Jr. and AC Wharton’s Tailgate Party in September 2005.

In 2006 he received another commission for a family portrait by patron Dan Stephen and launched his online doll shop at Etsy.com.

Artist Annabelle Meacham recently commissioned a small sculpture from Chellboy.
His work has been avaliable at The Folklore Store in downtown Memphis since April 2007.
