With his controversial and sometimes gruesome works, Hirst soon became one of the best known artists in Britain. "It's amazing what you can do with an E in A-Level art, a twisted imagination and a chainsaw," Hirst said in his acceptance speech.
Even though his career was thriving, not every exhibit went as planned.
Despite his sometimes wild behavior, he made his way to college.
Hirst studied art at the Goldsmith's College at the University of London.
Hirst continued to set the art world on fire with his work at the 1993 Venice Bienniale, a renowned international art exhibition.
There he showed "Mother and Child Divided," an installation piece that featured a bisected cow and her calf displayed in four vitrines, or glass cases, filled with formaldehyde.
Hirst got into trouble as teenager, and was caught shoplifting twice.
He was a finalist in the 2006 Georgia State Governor's Honor Program. He has also been a member of the Smosh web group on You Tube.
He and his older sister of eight years were born to parents named Roland and Marilyn.
He wanted to bring rotting cattle for an exhibit in New York City in 1995, but he was stopped by the city's health authorities.
Hirst, however, enjoyed a warm welcome the following year with a show at New York's Gagosian Gallery.
