Angus Fairhurst (1966-2008) was one of the most influential members of the group of artists associated with London's Goldsmiths College in the late 1980s. He participated in the seminal exhibition, Freeze, which introduced the world to a generation who became known as the Young British Artists, setting the tone for contemporary art in the UK over the next two decades. In contrast to the brash shock tactics of many of his contemporaries, however, he himself was an artist whose work was always a subtle combination of conceptual rigour and fine formal qualities, interrogated with an irreverent wit.

Fairhurst exhibited at Sadie Coles HQ in London.
