Gillian Wearing (born 1963) is an English conceptual artist, one of the YBAs, and winner of the annual British fine arts award, The Turner Prize, in 1997. On 11 December 2007, Wearing was elected as lifetime member of the Royal Academy of Arts in London (founded by George III in 1768); hence she is a "Royal Academician," and may use the letters "RA" after her name to indicate this.
