Art the Clown is a fictional character from the Terrifier franchise and related media. Created by Damien Leone, he first appeared in low budget short film before making his feature film debut in the anthology film All Hallows' Eve (2013), where he was played by Mike Giannelli. He later appeared as the antagonist in Terrifier (2016) and Terrifier 2 (2022), where he is played by David Howard Thornton.

Art is a demonic killer clown with mime-like qualities who appears on Halloween nights to wreak havoc. The character appears in many of director Damien Leone's works, originating in the short film The 9th Circle before taking on a more prominent role in feature horror films. Art's behavior is very much like that of a silent clown, in obvious reference to his appearance, and he is never shown speaking or making any other audible noises. Even when badly injured, he mimes screams of pain instead of actually screaming. He always (silently) laughs when his targets are in peril, and is very theatrical when hunting down and killing them, often performing his kills in an animated, comedic manner.

Unlike other silent slasher villains, Art is very expressive and emotional, using gestures and facial expressions to communicate.

Following the launch of the Terrifier franchise in 2016, the character has been the subject of extensive merchandising, appearing in licensed apparel lines, comic book, fan art, body art, and action figure. Thornton's performance, which incorporates physical comedy, received critical praise.
