How To Sell Abstract Art For A LivingCan I Sell My Artwork?
Is art more than a hobby or a part-time profession for you? Do you wonder if you could turn your love of art into a full-time art career? Is it even possible? It is! According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than half of all artists are self-employed, and earning income from selling their artwork.
Making art for a living can be extremely rewarding but may not be for every artist. In addition to knowing how to create beautiful artwork, you need to know how to assess your work, how much to charge, who to sell it to - and how to market yourself. Selling art for income is like any other business “ you need to have knowledge of marketing and business administration to become successful. You might be the next Monet but if you don't know how to get your artwork in front of potential buyers, you won't succeed as a professional artist.
For an artist, there is nothing more rewarding than making your art and sharing those creations with the world “ except maybe, also earning a living from doing what you love!
What Kind of Artist Are You?
Do you create traditional pieces of art? Are you an abstract artist, or want to get into selling abstract art?
Abstract art is color and form and lines and shapes used in a non-representational manner. Modern painting and sculpture that depart from the idea of art as an imitation of nature are considered abstract. The painting or sculpture might have started out looking like something easily identifiable; but due to distortions and alterations, it is not anymore.
Contrary to those who exclaim "My five-year-old could do that!", abstract art is not easy to create. In fact, Kandinsky claimed that, "Of all the arts, abstract painting is the most difficult."
The subject of abstract paintings are the colors, lines, and shapes; not something generally recognizable. According to World Encyclopedia, "There are two main types of non-objective art: expressionist, which is fundamentally emotional, spontaneous and personal; and geometrical, which works from the premise that geometry is the only discipline precise and universal enough to express our intellectual and emotional longings."
Wassily Kandinsky, often credited with the invention of the abstract art movement, said "Abstraction allows man to see with his mind what he cannot physically see with his eyes... Abstract art enables the artist to perceive beyond the tangible, to extract the infinite out of the finite. It is the emancipation of the mind. It is an explosion into unknown areas."
If you see yourself (and your art) in these descriptions, and abstract art is already a hobby or a passion, you may want to try making art for a living.
