British, b. 1963. Tracey Emin is best known for her oeuvre of autobiographical creations using mixed media, including films, paintings, photography, neon, sculptures and installations. The British artist rose to fame as a part of the Young British Artists. Her works are mostly revelations of her own life and experiences, as seen in "My Bed" (1998), a display of her own, unmade and messy bed, which she surrounded by personal items like empty liquor bottles and cigarette butts, at the Tate Gallery. Emin was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1999 for her raw, confessional, and paradoxical approach to art.
