Damien Hirst rose to fame in the late 1980s as a leading member of the group that became known as the Young British Artists (YBAs). He is now internationally recognised to be one of the most important living artists. Through a varied practice of installation, sculpture, painting and drawing Hirst explores the complex relationships between art, beauty, religion, science, life and death. Since 1987, over 90 solo Damien Hirst exhibitions have taken place worldwide, and he has been included in over 300 group shows. In April 2017, he presented his most complex project to date, Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable, across two museum spaces in Venice. Hirst lives and works in London and Gloucestershire.
