To be an artist, it requires you to be passionate more than anything. Initially, it starts out of personal interest but down the line, most artist feel they should get credit for it.
Over the years, things have transformed drastically. There has been a good change in almost every business vertical. Artists too have caught the bug. They have acknowledged the benefits of internet.
A few years back, they needed to get their work into a gallery to invite buyers and that was a stiff task. People these days don’t mind buying things online. But just like with other commodities, they are not able to inspect the work in person and that is the real challenge.
Selling your art online is like an enigma that is very difficult to solve. But that doesn’t mean that we should not try promoting our work.
A piece of art can have multiple forms. A small painting, sculpture, work of photography, a caricature..anything. One notable aspect of online art is that you have the opportunity to have exposure in any part of the world. And that is perhaps why online selling of art is so very important.
You can not always try and focus on the local market but putting your work online fetches you the visibility all over the world. Another advantage of showcasing your work online is that it gets the attention of users you always wanted.
For example – you are a painter in India but your style and interest lies with ancient Europe. Do you feel that the local audience would be able to understand your flavour? Very unlikely, the chances are bleak.
All it needs is to be a little smart in your approach. Although in the initial phase, it requires a lot of hard work but it gets easy once people start recognising you and your work. Enjoy this infographic to know more –
