Hirst first appeared in public consciousness in London in 1988 when he conceived of and curated Freeze, an exhibition in a disused London docklands warehouse that show-cased his work and that of his friends and fellow students at Goldsmiths College. National and international acknowledgment was to follow, 7 years later Hirst would win the Turner Prize and 30 years on from that he is recognised as one of the most influential artists of the last half-century.

His work is, for the most part, iconic and he is best known for his work’s recurring, unblinking, confrontational and often sardonic dialogue with death, mortality and the human condition. This could be in the guise of a 14-foot long tiger shark in a tank of formaldehyde (The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living, 1991), a four-part sculpture of a bisected cow and calf (Mother and Child Divided, 1993) or a human  skull  studded with 8,601 diamonds (For the Love of God, 2007).
