Someone puts stuff out in a public space, you can take photos of it.

So how to deal with your situation is determined by how nice of a person you are. You could tell them to get stuffed...

LOL I'm laughing so hard right now... Love that.

Seriously, what are they going to do, call the cops?

You could also just ignore them, continuing to take photos while blocking out their irrational demands.  That way you don't come across as the bad guy to anyone else who might be in the vicinity.  Let the artist make a fool of themselves, while you keep your cool.
