It's general in one way, but I'd say painters are rarely included among artister in Swedish. Maybe performer in English has a similar extension. I feel that en artist should be performing in front of an audience so that painters, sculptors, and writers typically aren't artister, while musicians and stage artists are.

konstnär is usually used for painters sculpturers, while artist is for musicians and other performers.
