The Vertiente Artiguista is a social-democratic political party in Uruguay led by Daoiz Uriarte.

It is variously translated as Artiguist Tendency,[1] Artiguist Slant,[2] and Artiguist Source.[3] The adjective Artiguist honors the 19th-century national hero José Artigas.[4] The noun vertiente means "slope" literally and can also mean "point of view" and "aspect".
