A Philosopher and Artist. Philosophartists are artists who put an over-philosophical meaning to justify a horrible and/or pointless piece of artwork.
Francois was showing a piece he completed at the museum of modern art. The work was a 4'x9' blank canvas painted a single shade of grey. A patron saw this piece and asked what it was, Francois answered that it served as a metaphor for the emptiness of a museum, that he believed that other than the artwork on the walls; museums were empty cold places which served no justice to beautiful pieces of artwork. Thus, Francois was a Philosophartist.
