Damien Hirst is a British conceptual artist and the most prominent member of the Young British Artists. Hirst was part of the YBA movement that rose to fame in the 1990s, mounting their own exhibitions in unconventional spaces, such as warehouses and factories. Born on June 7, 1965 in Bristol, Hirst was raised in Leeds. As a student at Goldsmiths College in London, he caught the eye of collector and gallerist Charles Saatchi, who then became an early patron. The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living (1991), a large vitrine containing an Australian tiger shark suspended in formaldehyde, was financed by Saatchi and helped to launch what would become a very successful and lucrative career for the artist. Hirst won the Turner Prize in 1995, and currently lives and works in London, Gloucestershire, and Devon.
