Jamie Paul Scanlon, often known as JPS, was born in 1977 in Weston-Super-Mare, a beach town near Bristol, United Kingdom.

His inventiveness manifested from an early age. Jamie was taught by his father, who spent a lot of time in prison and died when he was 18, and his outstanding paintings surprised teachers at school. He went to college to study graphic design after high school. Unfortunately, the government cut funding, and Jamie could no longer afford college and had to drop out. He worked as a shoe repairer and a key cutter after that.

At that time, everything started to go wrong for him. After two of his friends were murdered within six months of each other, he began taking mild narcotics, which quickly escalated into a crack-cocaine addiction and excessive drinking.

When he was at his lowest point in 2009, his friend George accompanied him to see a stencil art show in Bristol.
