Charles Williams studied at Maidstone Art College and the Royal Academy, where he was a prize winner for anatomical drawing. He was one of the founding artists of the first Stuckist art group in 1999 and has exhibited in all the major Stuckist shows. His other numerous exhibitions include a one man show at the Bakersfield Museum, California; the Royal Academy Summer Show; and the New English Art Club, where he is a committee member. He paints full-time, working regularly 9-5. He lived for many years in Kent, and is now resident in Bethnal Green.

He works from imagination, usually doing many variants of each subject, exploring its permutations. His palette started off with muted tones and developed into a much higher key of colour. Usually several canvases are rotated at any time and revisited for further work. His images reflect contemporary society, often interiors, whether living rooms, bedrooms or kitchens, or shops. Conformist mundanity is depicted in party scenes, where the participants are preoccupied with ingesting drugs, but seem largely oblivious to each other. His work has a sensual painterly quality.
