I have doubts about the phrase "Victim of art". Should I change it to "Art victim" or it can be used as it is but may be I miss articles? Or, please, suggest your own version with the same sense. Thanks.

    Would there be any way that you could supply a little more context - the phrases are just fine as they stand, but without knowing more, it's difficult to make any helpfull suggestions. You can use the"Edit" button to expand your question. – Duckisaduckisaduck Dec 31 '18 at 10:40

They're both fine (but odd and interesting). It really depends on style and tone. "Art victim" is punchier - it's a good name for a band. :-) "Victim of art", on the other hand, is better as a title for an axiety-filled poem. The X of Y phrasing sounds more formal and literary.
