Billy Bert Young was born in London, Ontario in 1983. He graduated from H.B. Beal Secondary School in 2003, where he was introduced to the drawings and zines of Marc Bell and Peter Thompson and the graffiti work of James Kirkpatrick’s (AKA Thesis Sahib). In 2004 he moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia where he graduated with a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design with a major in printmaking. In 2008 he moved back to London to be close to family and to work with other local artists. Since then he has made collaboration a main component of his practice; creating zines, drawings and murals alongside fellow artists such as James Kirkpatrick, Jason McLean, Jamie Quinn, and Peter Thompson.
