Art Slang Uncovered: Badass Artist
A person who speaks their mind with no filter.
Arty-Pedia 30 Dec 2016
Badass Artist
[bædæs ɑː(r)tɪst]


We’ve probably all met that one person who speaks their mind with no filter whatsoever: the rude grandmother in the family or the joker in the classroom. Well, guess what, the art world has one too. In former terms, they are recognised as controversial artists. They tackle sensitive issues from religion to sex while turning them on their heads to make a point. Some may know them as badass artists: zero f*** given here.
