The works are presented at the gallery of the Institute of Mexico in Belize City. Among them are the most recent productions which Young had not previously made public.

He had been painting with oil and acrylics since 1981, when he went away to Sweden for 5 years and continued painting and studying art.
On his return from Europe, he resettled in Caye Caulker, where he currently resides.
