Aged 16, Billy Childish worked at the local dockyard in Chatham as an apprentice stonemason. Denied an interview for the local art school, he produced hundreds of drawings that gained him entry to Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design. However, his defiance of authority and his insistence on integrity led to his eventual expulsion. Then began his artistic, literary and musical odyssey.

Billy Childish has a cult status worldwide, with solo and group exhibitions internationally, including New York, London, Seoul and Berlin. In 2011 he became Artist in Residence at the Chatham Historic Dockyard where he currently works.
