That girl from your Art History 101 class who wears hobo-chic apparel (large-framed glasses are a must), has Anna Karina bangs, worships Tracey Emin and/or Andy Warhol, frequents the local art house to catch the latest Harmony Korine film, frequents independent art galleries (ie, White Box and The James Fuentes Gallery in NYC) to view the latest New Ukrainian Painting installation, and reads Adorno for "fun" whilst sipping red tea, black coffee, box wine, and/or PBR. Probably listens to a lot of Serge Gainsbourg as well. Fits in very well in the designated hipster area of town.
Art fag must be in this definition.

Get a Artfag mug for your dog James.
A pretentious art student (usually in college) who listens to nothing but obscure indie and art rock bands (besides Death Cab, Radiohead, Interpol, The Strokes, Belle and Sebsastian, and Sonic Youth). They wear black-rimmed square glasses, a track jacket with stripes on the side, tight corduroy pants that are ripped, Chuck Taylors or Vans, man purses (even the girls), and some sort of hair farming technique (on black people, it's an afro with dreads).
Half of our Intro to Art class is filled with art fags.

Art Fag:

A pretentious individual who, although eventually graduating, never fully leaves the post pubescent mentality of a college student.

Consumed by the fear that if they are not individual and uniquely superior they are wasting away. They will go to great lengths to scoff at and insult finely dressed people for selling out to consumerism as they frequent forty dollar indie rock concerts with people half their own age and accessorize their second hand image with the latest in technical gadgetry.

They will always to a fault:

Use the metrics system in an inappropriate manner

They will be blatantly disdainful toward American sports and in turn cling desperately cling to soccer.

No picture can be taken without a special feature to demonstrate their superior eye. Altered states of perspective, lighting, and definitely in black and white.
Robert was such an art fag he took pictures at the handsome furs concert with his iphone set on sepia.
