Quinn makes art about what it is to be a person living in our world – creating portraits about humanity.
Marc Quinn is one of the leading artists of his generation. His sculptures, paintings and drawings explore the relationships between art and science, man and nature, the human body, and the perception of beauty. His work also connects frequently and meaningfully with art history, from modern masters right back to antiquity. Quinn is also passionate about humanitarian causes and recently established a UK-based charity called Human Love.
He has exhibited internationally in museums and galleries including Tate Gallery, London (1995), South London Gallery, (1998), Kunstverein Hannover (1999), Fondazione Prada, Milan (2000), Tate Liverpool (2002), National Portrait Gallery, London (2002), MACRO, Rome (2006), Fondation Beyeler, Basel (2009), Goss-Michael Foundation, Dallas (2009), Musée Océanographique, Monaco (2012), Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Venice (2013) and Arter, Space for Art, Istanbul (2014) and Somerset House, London (2015).
