    Tracey Emin

    British • 1963

    Tracey Emin is a prominent member of the Young British Artists (YBAs), who rose to critical and commercial success in the London art scene of the 1980s and 1990s. Emin is known for the personal, confessional nature of her work, which explores various mediums such as drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, neon text and found objects. Similar to fellow YBA artist Damien Hirst, Emin’s early work was championed by dealer Charles Saatchi, who exhibited Everyone I Have Ever Slept With 1963-1995 in 1997; the piece was comprised of names appliqued onto a small tent. Two years later, Emin was shortlisted for the Turner Prize. Her exhibition My Bed at the Tate Gallery became one of her best-known works, cementing her raw, confrontational style and catapulting her to international fame.

    Born in Croydon, England, Emin currently divides her time between Spitalfields, East London and the south of France. As her career has progressed, she has become increasingly known for creating neon sculptures and editions, which pair neon glass light with her distinctive handwriting.
