If you are a new artist and you are making some very nice art and you think you can make a profit out of it, then the next step would be to learn how to do it. Selling art requires a lot of skill and experience, that’s why not every artist is rich. There are a lot of good artists who have beautiful art and they never make it. Even if you are not good as someone else, it doesn’t mean that you cannot make a living from art, you just have to find the people who appreciate your art and what you do.


There are people all around the world who are helping the upcoming artist to succeed if they have any talent. However, these people are not looking for the only talent in your art. They are looking for an overall talent which means that you need to be able to present your art and sell it on your own. We have created this article to give you some professional tips and tricks that will help you sell your art. Even if you don’t have any previous experience with this.

Get Your Art and Name Out There

The first step to selling your art is to know how to marketize yourself and your art. that’s right. You won’t be able to sell your art just by simply placing it on some website. You need to create a follower base of people who appreciate your art. To do this, all you really need is to use social media like Instagram for example because it allows people from all around the world to see your art. Of course, there are other websites that offer the chance to share your art digitally with other people, there are even some websites that are designed just for sharing art pieces.


Creating these accounts will not cost you anything and you can really get started by just doing this. You most likely won’t get any profit, but you are not after that at this point yet. First, you want to make an audience for your art, a group of people who would be interested in seeing your art. Those people are the ones who will actually buy it later on. Make sure that you are staying active on these platforms and that you are posting often in order to maximize your success.

Ask Questions

As an artist, it is your job to understand what people are looking for and if you really want to make money. You will have to adapt to some of those things. of course. You don’t need to make something that you don’t like, that is not the point. All we are saying is that you need to ask your customers what they like in your art. So you can continue improving or even add something new to it. The best way to ask people is when your art is presented inside an art gallery. Then you have direct contact with those people.
