Én nem vagyok művész should be accepted too.

why Nem vagyok MUVESZNO?

Maybe the artist was female?

"Nem muves vagyok" is incorrect?

It's as if you wrote muvesh, to get an s in Hungarian you're supposed to write sz: Művész.

I typed exactly the right answer but it still said I was wrong.. But the "correct answer" they gave is the same as what I wrote

I'm not sure how Duolingo's testing engine works, but maybe they were too strict on this one. Are you sure you got the phonetic chars right i.e. művész and not muvesz? Maybe you wrote muves with a single s?

Yes I am certain all the accents are there I even took a snap shot of it, but I can't post a picture here

Then report it or open a support ticket attaching your screenshot.

I wrote "En nem a művész vagyok" - what is wrong with that ?

That would be "I am not the artist."

Why do we need "vagyok" here? (I was tempted to include it, but then thought of other sentences, like "a férfi rendőr." But, alas, I was wrong. Still, why do we use a form of "lenni" sometimes and not others? Isn't it enough to say "én"? "én nem művésznő"?
