People's Artist of the RSFSR (Russian: Народный артист РСФСР, Narodnyǐ Artist RSFSR) was an honorary title granted to artists of the Soviet Union who lived in the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic (RSFSR). It was inferior to the People's Artist of the USSR and superior to the Meritorious Artist of the RSFSR.

The title was introduced on 10 August 1931.[1] In 1992, after the RSFSR was abolished, it was replaced with the People's Artist of Russia.

Nomenclature and significance[edit]

The term is confusingly used to translate two Russian language titles: Народный артист РСФСР (fem. Народная артистка РСФСР), awarded in performing arts and Народный художник РСФСР, granted in some visual arts.
