Marc Quinn

Young British Artist Marc Quinn first came to prominence in 1991 when he exhibited Self, the now infamous sculpture of his head cast entirely out of his own frozen blood. He was selected for the Sydney Biennial in 1992 and was represented in Young British Artists II at the Saatchi Gallery in 1993. In June 2001 Quinn won the Royal Academy’s £25,000 Charles Wollaston prize for the most distinguished work in the summer exhibition. Quinn has exhibited all over the world with solo exhibitions at the Tate Gallery, London, the Kunstverein Hannover, the Fondazione Prada, Milan and Tate Liverpool. In 2005 Quinn’s sculpture, Alison Lapper Pregnant, was selected to occupy the fourth plinth in London’s Trafalgar Square.
