Biography

Gavin Turk (born 1967) is a British artist and one of the Young British Artists (YBAs). He often uses his own image in life-size sculptures of famous people. In using his own image in his works, Turk questions issues of identity and authorship.
Turk and his partner Deborah Curtis set up The House of Fairy Tales, a project based group of artists, in 2008, which aims to further educational community projects and support art.
