Cons, as used above, denotes the arguments against something, but it may also be slang for convicts (those individuals found guilty of a crime) or for the swindling done by con artists.

{Peter , that's two sentences, really. But never mind ;) }
Feet twisted at the ankles and toes, nails long and mangled, grime scaling off his skin, his dishevelled locks matted in places, a noxious odour emanating from his very being, the creature sidled into the room in decrepit rags as the sea of students who had been eager till a few moments ago to see the wolf boy, stepped back unconsciously averse to having anything to do with this specimen

Anything we are saying about art and artists is our subjective judgement.
