An artist doesn’t need to starve for their passion. Outdoor shows, brick and mortar locations, the internet and the availability of more venues has made it easier for creative entrepreneurs to showcase and sell their work. Selling artwork is, however, a competitive endeavor, and that has forced artists to produce beautiful and quality work that is competitively priced. To be successful with your ambition, you need to crunch the numbers, gradually build your business and create sales in low-cost venues before you move on to bigger arenas. Selling artwork or anything for that matter is an important business skill. Not everybody possesses the gift or talent to venture into the life of selling. However with this in mind, we should at least be able to sell one thing: and that’s ourselves. For an entrepreneur, your ability to convince potential buyers that you are someone capable of doing business with is vital for success. There’s no secret between the connection of art and money. A shocking idea is one that states that no artist is destined for starvation and poverty. If you are a passionate and creative artist, you can make some good money from your work, feel great about it and generate a massive following of supporters for your career. And that’s true! You may ask yourself why so many artists falter in the quest to make a living from art? The positive thing however is that many artists fail simply not because they don’t have the creativity or talent to produce great work, but rather because they haven’t been adequately trained to represent themselves properly to build customer bases and actually sell their amazing work. If you look at it this way, the olden day way of generating fame and fortune as an artist was about receiving favors of gatekeepers. Starting with patronage systems in Europe all the way to museums and galleries of our modern days. The olden way was simply about groveling for endorsements for outsiders, who at the time collected massive percentages of what artists earned in exchange for representation. This was of course very effective for the gatekeepers. Although the olden day method still works for a fewer number of artists, the drawback is its zero-sum game, which makes it hard to break in. The good thing is that there are more clear alternatives.
