About the artist

Damien Hirst

Damien Hirst, born 1965, is an English artist, curator, and collector. While studying at Goldsmiths College in London, Hirst curated a three part exhibition titled Freeze in 1988 to showcase his work as well as friends and fellow classmates. He quickly took the art world by storm and launched his career with this exhibition, and the group of artists in the show became known as the Young British Artists (YBA). Working in installation, sculpture, painting, and drawing, Hirst’s work explores enduring themes of life, death, religion, beauty, and science in unconventional and unexpected ways.  He is best known for contentious works like The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living (1991) from the Natural History series, a fourteen-foot tiger shark preserved in a tank of formaldehyde, and For the Love of God (2007), a platinum-cast human skull veneered with 8,601 diamonds. Other important series include his Spot paintings and Medicine Cabinet series.  The vitrines, tanks, or canvases of his work define the artwork’s space, while commenting on the “fragility” of existence.” A highly controversial artist, Hirst redefined the art market and traditional conventions of art making. Hirst’s work has been exhibited and collected internationally, and he is claimed to be the UK’s richest artist. Hirst had a major retrospective at Tate Modern in 2012, and that same year Gagosian showed more than three hundred of his Spot paintings at once across all eleven of the gallery’s locations. In 2015, he opened his own gallery, Newport Street Gallery in London featuring his own work and work of artists he collects like Francis Bacon, Tracey Emin, Jeff Koons, among others. Hirst lives and works in London, Gloucestershire, and Devon.
