Green was born in London and studied at Beckenham College of Art and the Royal College. He combined his international exhibiting career with teaching posts at Leeds College of Art and later Ravensbourne College of Art.

Green has made prints throughout his artistic career and believes that they are powerful vehicles of expression. In 1976 he said 'I don't find a Rembrandt etching of any less significance than one of his paintings, because it's reflected very much in value and uniqueness'.
