YBAs or Britart

An art movement that began in Great Britain in the 1990s. Initially called Young British Artists or YBAs, their work is now often called Britart (short for British Art). The YBAs are a group of British conceptual and installation artists who are known for their shocking, surprising, and controversial artworks. A well-known YBA artist is Damien Hirst.
