there is Bijiguan 碧鸡关，西山 on the road in direction to 安宁。they are workshops for artists there, but you will not meet a lot of them. a lot of workshops are closed. Some friends of mine moved to other places because there are not so much customers coming there because of the location. But now with the line 3 who stops nearby it's easier to go there. At least it's not as M60 where it's more a bar and restaurant place.. Yes there are some artists there but few.There is also 871 where they have a project to have an 'artist area'. I think artist goes where they can have a cheap workshop and showroom.. today saturday afternoon 23.09 there is an activity in 碧鸡关 you can go have a look..
