5 WAYS TO SELF PROMOTE YOUR ART IF YOU WANT TO SUCCEED!





Art is truly in the eyes of the beholder, people tend to make a decision to buy your art after several views that is the way it works.  For some fewer views and they buy while for others several views before a collector buys.



The reason for these disparities are sometimes, name recognition could prompt a quick purchase or good presentation of your Art could be a factor.


 While on the other hand poor presentation, costing, need, and relevance could lead to delays. The issues here are relative, there is no quick magic to sell your Art, you just have to put it out there for people to see and decide for themselves.



 I have been fortunate to be in the Art business for over 20 years, so I have a bit of experience on how it goes, the disappointments and the highs work hand in hand with Artist and their Artworks, you just have to be dug in and reinvent yourself in order to remain relevant to your collectors and patrons.



So I have decided, to share the five go-to ways I use to self promote my Art and rein in the sales.


1.
Have Your Social Media Accounts do the Talking for You

Yes, you read well, allow your social media accounts to do the talking for your Art. Create Art accounts that speak about your Artworks, post constantly and tell stories around your Art that are compelling and fun that will draw in the audience and turn them into them into collectors.



I have created my accounts and I post constantly on a daily basis about my Artworks because that is my content that I share to a targeted audience.



I totally share my Art, on my social media pages constantly these platforms create for me and an audience that view and follow what I do.

Facebook Instagram

Twitter

Blogger Pinterest


2.  Host Art Parties:
I love Art parties they are intimate and informal, it could be your birthday or you can create an event and let your guest know, that it is all about celebrating your new Artworks.



 Provide good food and drinks create an informal ambiance, that makes your artworks the center of discussion



3.  Show Friends and Family What  You Do:
This is displaying your art in a rather informal setting. Invite family and friends and explain to them what your artwork is all about.



 Art is word of mouth, they may not collect your work personally, but trust me they will talk about you and your artwork, and sometimes they help you spread it on social media and that can lead to sales.

4.   Create Workshops, Webinars, for Your Peers:
Everyone loves something that has meaning and impacts their lives. It could be workshops, webinars, and courses that help people.


As an Artist, it is a way for me
to self-promote my artworkIt is also all about helping other artists achieve the same success.

5.  Solo Exhibitions Via Collaborations:
Solo exhibitions are great but they entail a lot of money and most Artist cannot afford this. For me, I love solo exhibitions, that way my artwork gets all the attention and I can focus on selling to potential collectors. 








The collaboration in this context is asking friends or family members who have influence and are in certain circles that can pull in the right crowd, to be part sponsors and you share a decent percentage of your sales with them.



These five ways are my own tried and tested ways that yielded good Art sales for me. I know there are other creative ways out there but at least, I have shared mine. ......Enjoy.

I know that because I have been there. It was difficult to get any gallery representation, for years I relied on friends heavily to buy my works because my Art style was misunderstood.
I basically create abstract Art with objects and my paintings are mostly Ink based on paperboards. It was really a financial burden to carry on working when no one around me was buying. So when the online selling platforms came on, I knew I had to get on board if I was to keep creating Art.

I joined the internet in 2013, opening my Art blog on blogger, I posted my first blog on bottles I had made and simply described how I made them and the views from people were staggering and the rest is history.



Today I sell via my blog and I have created a successful Art business, just by storytelling my Art, my own way without boundaries and reaping the full benefits of my hard work, as an independent unrepresented Artist.

 I know the difficulty it entails to put this beauty, created by us called Artworks, out there best paintings, sculpture, graphics, fashion, pottery or ceramics, photography etc and be taken seriously by galleries, markets, dealers, collectors etc.....is a huge, if not a herculean task to bear.

 That brings me to the issue, of the Internet and the artist. The Internet has created a platform for the artist that could be far-reaching than we artist anticipate.
 An artist can make a living by the side, regardless of brick and mortar or huge financial commitment, just by uploading and clicking.  Whilst waiting for the big break, we all dream about and desire.

The Internet at least is on the side of the artist, the reason I say so is from my own experience.



  
That is why I have created this six weeks course, here in Johannesburg for unrepresented Artist. So join me for this course and learn how to represent yourself and earn the money you deserve.

You will learn:

Art & Craft with Rope


myBluprint.com

COLOURS 
THAT
POP!





Sometime last year, discovered a box of ropes in my favourite charity store and bought them.



Inside the box, there where wax cord ropes and cotton ropes, and the colours of these ropes, where my motivation to buy the entire box. 




I could see these soft pastel colours, on home decor items and that was my uppermost  inspiration.


I had to create items that pop.



The colours, are soft pastel colours and  they represent the trend colours, I felt really lucky to have found them and also for a good price too.



 It took me 3 months and some days, to finish all the bottles and vases, because these ropes are really thin and need to be handled with care.



  For me it was an experience, worth every minute of my time and a truly humbling one. 




They are all finished and I share some of my favourites with you..............Enjoy.

Art Interpretations Of Things, Places & Events

I have been away for a while and truly needed a break and some sort of holiday to clear my head and prepare my mind for my next art pursuit.

 I do not know, what I would be doing next,but it's fun sometimes to just relax and reflect on what one has done in the past.


And how far, I am prepared to go further into my love for exploring new subjects in art.


Also how to juxtaposition these ideas, with my love for creating sustainable art, using recyclable materials.


That been said, here are some of my past works, that I enjoyed creating and truly felt a connection with the subject matter or the inspiration that led to the birth of these works.

HOUSES IN A SNOW BLIZZARD ABSTRACT ART

This blog has been updated

The weather news report coming from abroad is really fascinating and one that is indeed amazing. 


As we watch the cable news and see the snow blizzards, being described with terms like "cyclone bomb", "Hurricane snow winds", Snow blizzard and freezing temperatures of -17 degrees, we really wonder how people are coping and all the havoc this might be causing.

I really appreciate the fact that in Johannesburg where I live,it is summer right now with the weather in between rain and heat.


It is really strange, that we down here are witnessing these overwhelming, snowstorms everywhere through the international cable news, with the deaths involved and we are just overwhelmed, with the intense climate change that is so real.

Our hearts, are with all those who are suffering and have to endure this horrendous snowstorm or Polar vortex as it is being referred to.

These Abstract Art paintings, represent what it looks like when there is a heavy snow blizzard.When entire neighbourhoods and communities are covered in snow.

 I know right now it's summer in Johannesburg where I reside, but somewhere it is snowing heavily, that's just the way the earth functions.

 Except this particular winter season, is different and bombastic in its delivery and has left thousands if not millions, wondering what exactly is going on with the weather?            

                               Sponsored

I have watched several movies about impending snow storm and people were stuck, either in their houses or on the road, but this is not a movie. 

This is reality with deaths already recorded, people being rescued from their homes and freezing temperatures of below minus degrees, cars, houses and roads completely frozen and covered in snow, no movie can deliver these scenes.

This year is just beginning and people are already stuck in this huge snow falls, like never seen before around the world. 

My inspiration for these paintings, comes from my fascination with nature and seasons, in relation to how it affects our lives and environment and understanding that nature is dynamic and will continue to overwhelm, us with surprises.




Nature must have it's way always.

The different seasons we experience, show the dominance and prominence nature plays in our lives, with or without our consent.

Sometimes, it just determines the look and feel of our surroundings for us, hence the subject matter of these paintings, 'Houses in a Snow Blizzard'. 

It's always up to nature, to transform and occupy our lives with its presence and colour when it strikes!..............Let's stay safe everyone.
