About the artist

Tracey Emin is one of the most prominent of the Young British Artists (YBAs). She attracted huge media attention for her pieces 'Everyone I Have Ever Slept With 1963 - 1995' and 'My Bed'. She often uses her own life as inspiration for work in a wide range of mediums: painting, drawing, video, installation, photography, needlework and sculpture. In revealing her childhood and adolescent experiences and exploring issues to do with relationships and the body, Emin explores self-representation and female life. Any prints we obtain for Rise Art often sell out quickly.

The Insider Anthony Fawcett says:

"I have had the pleasure of knowing Tracey Emin for decades, and am always impressed with the output of her work. Whether creating a signature installation such as 'My Bed', or producing one of her small etchings, the artist puts her soul into creating the work. One of the most famous of Britain's YBAs', Tracey's work will continue to stand out as one of the generations most talented artists. "
