Established in 1985, Saatchi gallery is a world top contemporary art gallery that plays an important role in nourishing UK’s contemporary art scene. Currently, Saatchi gallery presents 15 of the 30 most visited museum exhibitions in London, with more than 1.5 million visitors every year. Charles Saatchi, the founder of the Saatchi Gallery, started to collect works from emerging young British artist such as Damien Hirst since the late 1980s. Through the ‘Young British Artists I’ exhibition, he laid the groundwork for the YBAs (Young British Artists) to be exposed internationally. A strategic marketing plan of the ‘Sensation’ exhibition by Saatchi at the Royal Academy in 1997, elevated UK’s contemporary art scene to be in a class by itself.
