Translation in progress

Damien Hirst is an internationally renowned artist born in Bristol in 1965. He grew up in Leeds with his mother and stepfather. He worked for two years on London building sites, then studied Fine Art at Goldsmiths, University of London (1986–89).

While still a student in 1988, Hirst organized and promoted "Freeze", an independent student exhibition which was held in a warehouse in London’s Docklands. Damien Hirst is the most prominent member of the group known as the Young British Artists (or YBAs), who dominated the art scene in the UK during the 1990s. During the 1990s his career was closely linked with the collector Charles Saatchi.

In 1995, Hirst won the prestigious Turner Prize.
