The Kiss Was Beautiful by Tracey Emin

About The Artist - Tracey Emin

Tracey Emin lives and works in East London and Margate, UK, and is known for her autobiographical and confessionary artwork. She works in a variety of mediums: drawing, painting, sculpture, film, photography, neon text, and sewn appliqué. 

We love the openness of her exploration of her personal history and how it's distilled into her creative process. Emin’s raw emotions are evident throughout her artworks, and yet she somehow straddles both intimacy and universality in her art. Of her practice, she has said: “The most beautiful thing is honesty, even if it’s really painful to look at.”

Emin came to prominence as one of the “Young British Artists” of the 1980s, and has since exhibited across the world. She was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1999, and in 2013 was awarded a CBE (Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire). Emin’s artwork is held in some of the world’s most prestigious institutions, including the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Tate Gallery in London, and the Goetz Collection in Munich.
