Steve Green was born in East Orange, New Jersey and raised in Scotch Plains, Steve was introduced to art at an early age by his older brother Patrick, who was gifted in drawing and painting and was influenced by the graffiti scene of the eighties. By the time he was fourteen years old, Steve envisioned art as his lifelong profession. He began painting and airbrushing shirts and jackets for friends, and discovered that his skills could prove lucrative. He grew as an artist and later attended the Art Institute of Philadelphia earning a degree in Advertising and Graphic Design. After graduation, he worked at an Ad Agency on Madison Avenue in New York City, and later launched a career as a freelance artist.
