Furry art or anthro art (a misnomer, as anthro means "human") is a phrase sometimes used to describe artwork depicting anthropomorphic animal characters. A person who creates furry art is called a furry artist. Usually furry art is created with furry fandom as the main audience, though some works that could be described as "furry art" are intended for a larger, more mainstream audience.

The most basic and pervasive idiom of furry art is the depiction of humanoid figures with animal traits: heads, tails, ears, fur, and so on. Another popular theme in furry art is in the transformation of people to animals and vice versa, as in werewolves or other mythical creatures, or in science fiction devices, such as the use of genetic engineering.
