How to make a Living Selling your artwork.



  • It is a well-known fact that art comes from within and an artist makes the art for himself. When you make a piece of art by putting your heart and soul into it, be sure that it is going to be a success at least for you. In addition to it, you need to be in sync with the world.

    Selling an artwork is quite tricky nowadays but majority of artwork is sold online and, in that case, you need to share your work as much as possible but be careful that you always place a signature on your artwork! Do not limit yourself to local galleries; search far and wide for the best fit.

    Social connections are the best way to bring traffic to your artwork. You can make a website and put all your artwork on it. Also, you can make a blog and write for young aspiring artists.
    It is a fact that selling an art work gets easy when you have knit-picked an art community and a large number of people following your work. So, “Be more social”.

    Put/Print a piece of your best artwork on your Business & Visiting Cards and Social Network profiles. People remember images and faces more than names. So, make them aware of your masterpiece and skills.

    Display your artwork in art-galleries. Art galleries are deluged with requests from artists to include their work in exhibits. In that case, you need to make your best efforts with the most convincing reason why they should display your work in their gallery and how they fit in with the art and artists the gallery already displays.

    Promote yourself, artwork, and your website like crazy to be discovered- Do not be shy about promoting or advertising your artwork and website on internet or local events. This could be the best way to make people notice your artwork.

    Display your art pieces in public There are art and public shows you can enter to sell your work directly to the public. At such places, you will find yourself surrounded by many people who are interested in art.

    Quoting the right price is another important factor Set a reasonable price for your artwork which is comparable in prices quoted by artists with similar experience and accomplishments

    Work with other artists. You could join and work with another artist/s and have a group show and sale in which all artists help spread the work.

    Once you have established your presence in the market, you can effectively draw buyers of artwork to you, increase your reputation, and create the career of your dreams.

    I hope this helps! Any feedback is highly appreciated. :)
