Post-YBAs refers to British artists emerging in the 2000s after the Young British Artists.

Post-YBA artists include Tim Noble and Sue Webster,[1] Carey Young,[2] Oliver Payne and Nick Relph,[3] David Thorpe,[4] Eva Rothschild,[5] Mike Nelson[6] and Darren Almond.[7]

According to Matthew Higgs, Simon Starling's winning of the Turner Prize in 2005 reflected a post-YBA sensibility which is more modestly material and formal than spectacle-driven.[8] Enrico David tapped into a post-YBA vogue for craft.[9] The post-YBA generation has also been associated with neo-conceptual art with a political edge.[10]

Artists associated with the post-YBAs include Martin Maloney.[11]
