Fiona Rae is a contemporary British artist who first won acclaim through Damien Hirst’s famous 1988 Freeze show. Fiona’s style is a beguiling mix of pop art, expressive paint marks and cartoon graphics. We love the artist’s colourful, eye-popping prints - once they catch your eye it can be hard to look away!
Fiona studied Fine Art at Goldsmith’s College in London. Since gaining initial recognition through Hirst’s Freeze, the artist has gone on to exhibit work in major galleries and museums across the globe. In 2002 Rae was elected to the Royal Academy of Arts. She has also been appointed a Tate Artist Trustee.
Over the course of her career Fiona has been shortlisted for a number of prestigious awards, including Tate Britain’s Turner Prize (1991), the Eliette von Karajan Prize for Young Painters in Austria (1993), and the Royal Academy’s Charles Wollaston Award (2007).
