Biography

Damien Hirst (1965)

Damien Hirst, born in Bristol, England, grew up in Leeds and studied at Goldsmith College in London from 1986 to 1989. In 1988 he organized the exhibition “Freeze” for himself and his fellow students, which brought Charles Saatchi’s lucrative attention to the young artists, especially Hirst himself, and thus to the international art market. Thanks in part to his effective self-marketing, he became one of the most highly traded contemporary artists in the 1990s. Using provocative to shocking means, Hirst thematizes, among other things, beauty, transience and death, traditional themes of art history.
