Bill Harbort

William Charles Harbort a.k.a. Billy Chuck is originally from New York where he worked as a commercial artist; a package designer for a major cosmetics company, an art director for a children's  educational software company and an automotive magazine illustrator. Bill is currently a Professor in the art department at Minot State University. "Being a college professor has provided me the opportunity to explore.... my painting is driven by thoughts; commercial art, pop culture and bits of ephemera. "Paint-by-numbers", coupons and clip art are just a few ingredients often found in our popular culture landfill. I am fascinated with each individual ingredient and the infinite messages that can be expressed by combining and juxtaposing them thru collage. It is through this process that I discover meaning and express thought. Allusion, suggestion and investigation become an important part of the viewing experience."
