Damien Hirst

b.1965 -

Damien Hirst is a British sculptor and artist and one of the late-20th century's greatest names in recent art history. He rose to fame through his controversial art and installations, which focused primarily on his captivation with the relationship between life and death.

Hirst’s installation The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living at the first Young British Artists (YBA) exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery in London, became an overnight sensation and as a result of the show, earned him a nomination for that year's Turner Prize. He went on to win The Turner Prize in 1995 and he continues to innovate through the various mediums of installations, sculptures, paintings, and drawings.
