Biography from Morton Fine Art:
b. 1970, Washington, DC

Billy Colbert has exhibited all over the country. His most notable solo
exhibitions have been museum shows at the African American Museum in
Dallas, Texas and the Delaware Center for Contemporary Art in
Wilmington, Delaware.

Colbert has used popular culture, personal
experiences and cultural leveraging to serve as narrative for his 2D and
3D mixed media works.  A few of his public collections include the
University of Wisconsin at Madison, the National Academy of Sciences,
Museum of South Texas, Corpus Christi, Texas and The African American
Museum in Dallas, Texas. His work is in numerous private collections
including noted actor, Jeffery Wright, prominent art collector and
former NBA player and Coach, Darrell Walker.

In 1999 Colbert won the
Mixed Media Purchase Prize and was chosen Best in Show at the Carroll
Harris Simms National Black Art Exhibition at the African American
Museum in Dallas, Texas. The show was curated by the late artist and MacArthur  Fellow, John T.Scott.

Colbert works and resides in Washington,
D.C.. He received his MFA in painting from the University of Delaware in
2000, where he was a Presidential Fellow.
