Gavin Turk

A key player in the YBA movement, Turk is known for his large-scale public sculptures, including a gigantic green door in the Olympic Park and a 12-metre nail in the City of London. Smaller pieces often focus on themes of identity and reference characters from popular culture – one of his most famous screen prints is a rendition of Warhol’s portrait of Elvis, speckled with diamond dust.

In an art world yin and yang, Turk’s degree show installation (a plain, white studio entitled ‘Cave’, with a blue plaque featuring his name and work dates) lost him his graduation from the Royal Academy of Arts – but won him the patronage of Charles Saatchi.
