Discover the best young artists to collect in 2021

Every fall Saatchi Art’s curators scour the globe to publish their definitive list of promising up-and-coming artists you should know right now. This year they’ve found 27 trailblazing emerging artists—many of whom have recently graduated from BFA and MFA programs—who represent the future of art today.

Some are tackling contemporary social issues in their work, others are experimenting with new technologies, many are redefining traditional art styles, and all are creating powerful work that challenges the status quo and has a strong potential to increase in value.

Whether you’re looking to discover a new artist, add a statement piece to your home, or commemorate an important life event, Saatchi Art is your portal to thousands of original works by the world's top emerging artists. If you’d like assistance finding an artwork you love, or would like to commission something new, please contact us at We always look forward to hearing from you!
