    Damien Hirst

    Damien Hirst, the enfant terrible of British art, was born in Bristol, England in 1965. His early life wasn't steeped in art, but a formative experience working in a mortuary undoubtedly left a mark. This fascination with death and mortality would become a recurring theme in his work.
