Damien Hirst was born in 1965 in Bristol and grew up in Leeds. In 1984 he moved to London, where he worked in construction before studying for a BA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths college from 1986 to 1989. He was awarded the Turner Prize in 1995. Since, Hirst has become internationally renowned and has been credited with raising the profile of British art and bringing art to new audiences. His contribution to British art over the last two and a half decades is recognised this year in a major retrospective of his work staged at Tate Modern. Hirst lives in Devon and has studios in London, Gloucester and Devon.
