About Damien Hirst

View Profile »

Damien Hirst (b. 1965) is a British artist best known for his leading role in the Young British Artist (YBA) movement of the 1990s. Hirst’s artistic practice varies wildly—from dead animals submerged in formaldehyde, to pristine, ominous medicine cabinets, to the pharmaceutically poppy, menacingly hollow spot paintings—but his key themes are life’s mortality and modern science’s palliative, seductive allure. Rising from the British recession of the 1990s, his middle-class artistic persona melds the antagonism and shock of British punk rock with the showmanship and audacious capitalism of Andy Warhol.
