British artist Damien Hirst studied Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, London. In 1988 he curated ‘Freeze’, a group exhibition of Goldsmiths students, a significant milestone in the subsequent development of the Young British Artists (YBA’s). Hirst has had over 80 solo exhibitions worldwide and in 1995 was awarded the Turner Prize. A major retrospective of his work was held at Tate Modern, London in 2012.
