Gavin Turk is a renowned conceptual artist who rose to prominence in the late 80s as one of the Young British Artists. Turk’s art explores themes of authenticity, identity, and the ‘myth’ of the artist.

Gavin Turk | Pink Trash. Turk has depicted trash bags in various forms over the years as a comment on our wasteful consumerist lifestyles. His interest hails from the fact that society is defined by what we throw away, and deconstructed by what we choose to display in our galleries and museums…so what happens if we decide that trash is art?

This inkjet print is from a limited edition of 30, signed and numbered by the artist.


Gavin Turk

Gavin Turk is one of the cohort of Young British Artists that rose to prominence in the late 80s, becoming known for their shock tactics and entrepreneurial attitudes. Turk’s art deals with matters of authenticity and identity, and explores the ‘myth’ of the artist.

Turk’s artistic career first garnered attention back in 1991 when his tutors at the Royal College of Art refused to pass him based on the artwork he entered into his graduation exhibition. His submission, entitled ‘Cave’, consisted of nothing but a white-washed studio space with a blue heritage plaque on the wall stating, ‘Gavin Turk worked here, 1989-1991’.

‘Cave’ brought Turk instant notoriety, and caught the attention of the art industry. Since then, he has created an extensive body of work questioning the integrity of the artistic identity.
