Every artist wants to see appreciation for their work. While most are content with simply having their talents known and liked, others aim higher; and try to earn a living through their talents. But regardless to whether it’s for fame or for the money, it’s vital that you get your art work in front of people and get it popular. But how do you do so? Here are a few of our tips and suggestions on that.
Make use of social media – we live in a time in which the internet and everything that’s related to it play a prominent part in our lives. Social media has a power of its own, and many businessmen and artists alike use it to promote their business, and drum up clients and fans for their art work. The important thing is to remember to keep it friendly, approachable as well as constant; so, make sure you have a lot of content at hand to start off.
Invite people over to see the “work-in-process” – if your medium of art doesn’t translate too well in the digital platforms, it’s always best to display it “live”. If you don’t have enough artwork to display at a gallery, consider inviting people over to view your unfinished ones. Remember that there should be enough there to intrigue them about the finished work. You can use your work space or a studio rental Hong Kong with plenty of light and space for this.
Display your art – if you can afford to, or if you have enough work to display, opt to displaying your work at galleries. If the galleries around your locality only showcase prominent or famous work, then consider renting a space (like a perfect party room booking) to make a gallery of your own. You can sell your creations, as well as work there; giving your audience a glimpse of how you work.
Join art societies – art societies are a great way to not only make your art work famous among the art community, but also to meet likely minds as well as learn and be aware of the current trends. Most art societies display their most prominent artists’ work; so you won’t even have to spend on renting a gallery of your own.
Enter competitions – it is not without reasons that most artists (and creators of every form of art, in that case) love competing. Not only is it a great way to get their creativity a running start, it’s also a one of the best ways to get your art famous. Try and push yourself to compete at bigger competitions—like international competitions. This will inevitably give you a wider audience as well.
