Artist Bio:

Billy Bert Young was born in London, Ontario in 1983. He graduated from H.B. Beal Secondary School and in 2008 received a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design with a major in printmaking. During his time in Halifax he exhibited work in several group and solo shows. In 2008 he moved back to London to be close to family and to work with local artists that had influenced his work in the past. Since then he has made collaboration a main component of his practice; creating zines, drawings and murals alongside fellow artists such as James Kirkpatrick and Jason McLean. Billy Bert Young is represented by Michael Gibson Gallery, in London, Canada.
