Gavin Turk attended the Royal College of Art in London. In his MA exhibition show, Cave (1991), he presented a whitewashed studio space containing only a blue heritage plaque commemorating his presence. Though refused a degree, his subsequent notoriety attracted the attention of Charles Saatchi and he became part of a loosely associated group known as the 'Young British Artists' (YBAs). Turk was recently commissioned to make several public sculptures including Nail (2011), a 12-metre sculpture next to St Paul's Cathedral in the City of London. Public collections include Tate, London; Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A), London; and Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York.
