“Great art – or good art – is when you look at it, experience it and it stays in your mind. I don’t think conceptual art and traditional art are all that different.”

Damien Hirst

Damien Hirst was born in Bristol in 1965 and grew up in Leeds. In the 1980’s he moved to London and worked in construction before studying fine art at Goldsmiths College. Hirst became a major contemporary art figurehead after organizing an exhibition in an abandoned warehouse for himself and his classmates. This pivotal show he named, “Freeze”, was something that would define the young artist’s career, and it ultimately led to him winning the Turner Prize in 1995. Hirst then went on to become one of the most influential artists of the contemporary art period and his generation
