About the Author

Damien Hirst is one of the most celebrated living artists in the world. His work confronts the scientific, philosophical, and religious aspects of human existence and includes sculpture, painting, and printmaking. Born in Bristol, England, in 1965, he studied at Goldsmith's College. In 1988 he curated the now-renowned London exhibition, "Freeze," in which he exhibited his work and that of his contemporaries. The exhibition is widely believed to have been the starting point of the Young British Artists' careers, and a defining moment in kick-starting cutting edge British contemporary art. In 1991 he had his first solo exhibition, also in London, "In and Out of Love." In 1992 he was a major part of the groundbreaking "Young British Artists" exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery. Hirst was awarded the prestigious Turner Prize in 1995. His work has been shown in many important group and solo shows throughout the world and is in major international museum collections. . He lives and works in Devon and London.
