I'm so lost on the context of the wrestling example that was just reads more like a wrestling gimmick than anything having to do with art. Are there links that can be provided showing how it fits?

Moving these examples for lack of clarity on how they're supposed to fit the trope.

Professional Wrestling

  • CHIKARA has BLANK, a Mad Artist originally known as "The Generator" Race Jaxonnote  and, after the team split up due to Jaxon turning heel on Rockwell, he started a Pretty Boy/The Fighting Narcissist gimmick as "Young And Handsome" Race Jaxon. Rockwell defeated him in a "Loser Wears A Mask" match at the 2017 Season Finale Closing Time. He returned at the 2018 Season Premiere Beware The Snowman on January 28th as BLANK. At National Pro Wrestling Day 2018 on February 17th with his first "creation," Ursa Minor in the Night Sky. At Hour of Power 13 on February 24th, BLANK unveiled his second "creation," Still Life With Apricots and Pears, along with officially naming their trio The Nouveau Aesthetic. While commentator Mike Quackenbush would speak well of art during their matches, he'd also say that it is very subjective. The gimmick could best be described as an In-Universe example of True Art Is Incomprehensible. Still Life defeated The Proletariat Boar of Moldova due to Ursa Minor's interference at Hour of Power 14 on March 24th. After the match, BLANK unzipped his mask and he said something that ended with "Art is dead. Long live the Nouveau Aesthetic," and the crowd chanted "That's not art! That's not art!" BLANK would dismiss Ursa Minor after "Juke Joint" Lucas Calhoun, Jeremy Leary and Blanche Babish defeated The Nouveau Aesthetic in a six-person mixed-tag match at It Came From Beneath The Sink! on September 22nd. However, Still Life have done very well for themselves (Still Life identifies as non-binary, preferring they/them pronouns.), defeating Boomer Hatfield in the finals of Young Lions Cup XV 2nd Stage on March 16, 2019 to become the first non-binary Champion in wrestling.
  • Episode 2 of Bray Wyatt's "Firefly Fun House" skits involves him painting a canvas where a house is burning with a girl (Sister Abigail) inside of it; the whole thing referencing Randy Orton burning the Wyatt Family's compound on the road to WrestleMania 33. He then hangs the painting on the wall.
