This article is about the Copy Ability from Kirby Star Allies, and should not be confused with Paint, a copy ability from Kirby Super Star (Ultra).

Artist is a Copy Ability that debuted in Kirby Star Allies. The Artist ability gives Kirby a magical paintbrush which can be used to splatter enemies in paint, and paint entities that can attack autonomously. Kirby also gains the ability to sculpt stone statues which he can then use to bash enemies with.

Artist is obtained from Vividria the mid-boss, who also can use this ability when recruited as a Friend. It gives both Kirby and the Vividria Friend a red painter cap adorned with a star and splattered with paint. The ability is unlimited use unless the Painbrush technique is used, which causes Kirby to lose the ability. However, Vividria cannot use Painbrush in any mode.

Sprayed paint from Artist attacks can put out fire and destroy Electro Saws and Zan Partizanne's lightning drums, but cannot provide the Splash element to allies. When Artist Kirby, Vividria or Adeleine & Ribbon become the rider of Friend Star or Star Allies Sparkler, they fire bullets with no element.

Appearance[edit]

When Kirby gains the Artist ability, he is given a large wooden paintbrush smothered in rainbow-colored paint. He also gains a red hat which resembles a beret and has a paint-covered star inset near the front, and a splash of green paint on the side. As a final touch, Kirby's right cheek is splashed with light blue paint.
