Young British Artists is a loose knit group of artists
that rose to fame in the 1990s. They include artists
that often used shock tactics, used new materials
to produce art (sometimes perishable materials),
and were from the East of London. The art collector
and gallery owner Charles Saatchi was a major financial
supporter and promoter of the group. The "Young
British Artists" group lasted from around 1988
through to the end of the 1990s. Also know as Britart,
Young Brit Artists, YBAs, or Brit Artists.
