So the next question will be, how do I do this? Who do I approach? If they don't look for you, then you need to start building your own empire. Here a few simple things to keep in mind that will help you to kick start and get your art recognised!
1. Be Prepared
Before you decide to take the plunge and start working on getting your artworks known to the world, be well prepared to face the challenges that might come your way. This might include healthy competitions with fellow artists and dealing with painful rejections. Most importantly, equip yourself with good skills and constantly work on getting better in what you do. Be confident of yourself, your art and ideas. Remember, a great building can't be built on a weak foundation.
2. Make Connections
"Train yourself to be able to interpret an art based on the ideas, principles and the historical context and what the artist is possibly trying to convey."
3. Be a Conversationalist
As you start becoming a familiar face, you will be meeting more and more people from the art circle. Be ready for conversations that might include healthy debates and tactical arguments. Confidence and good communication skills is definitely a plus point here! When conversing, know the right terms or vocabulary and try to catch up on the main points of the conversation. Train yourself to be able to interpret an art based on the ideas, principles and the historical context and what the artist is possibly trying to convey. This will help when someone is trying to break the ice by striking a conversation on art.
4. Art Bazaars or Markets
5. Make Use of What is Accessible
This is where social media platforms and your online connections come in handy. Create a Facebook page, or an Instagram account. If you are confident enough, why not a website? This will enable people to look you up and connect easily with your updates. The more you reach out, the better. Of course this requires some discipline and schedule planning. But hey, who says you need to do it everyday? Start at your convenience and work slowly on making it a habit.
