British-born and based Damien Hirst is one of the most successful and controversial artists of his generation. Pushing boundaries from the outset, Hirst put together a revolutionary exhibit called “Frieze” while studying art Goldsmith’s College at the University of London. Soon after, he became a guiding figure of the Young British Arts (YBA) movement in the 1980s and 1990s, known for the use of unlikely materials and provocative concepts.
