The artist has black hair.

White replies so he is not speaking, either Red or Black is speaking. Since the hair color does not match the name, Red must be speaking and is either white or black. White is either red or black haired. Black is white or red haired. White knows his own hair color, which can't be white; the speaker can't be Black since Black cannot have black hair, so it must be Red, the artist, with black hair.
