4- How to Find Your Art Style and Vision.

how to find your art style

It’s not easy to find your art style. The work of many great artists is instantly recognisable. They have a distinct art style.
I learned that there is only one way to do this, and that is by making a lot of different things, and experiment as much as possible. Slowly, throughout the years my personal style and artistic vision became clearer and clearer overtime. 

4.1- Writing an Artist Statement.

An artist statement can be a key part of your artist portfolio or website. Think bout the ‘about’ page.

Remember the keyword search we did about our art niche in the previous step? Well, those will come in handy when writing our statement.

An artist statement is a written description of your art and your artistic vision. It can be used to introduce your work and help people understand the meaning and context behind your art. It is also an excellent way to find your art style.

Many galleries and exhibitions as well as grants and funding opportunities require artists to submit an artist statement as part of their application. Also handy for press releases or media interviews, a well-written artist statement can help you stand out and increase your chances of being noticed.

4.2- Creating Value as an Artist.

Look at what other artists in your niche or medium are charging for their art. This can give you a sense of what the market is willing to pay and help you determine a competitive price.

If you are targeting high-end collectors you may be able to charge more for your art than if you are targeting a more budget-conscious audience. Pricing your art can be a challenging task, as there are many factors to consider.

It’s important to remember that the price of your art is not just about the cost of materials and your time – it’s also about the value that your art brings to your audience. At the same time, lets also think about what kind of value we can offer to achieve that change. Learn how to price your art and add value.

4.3- Creating a Portfolio that Reflects your Vision.

Nowadays, most artists have an online portfolio so that it can be shared digitally with interested people from all over the world. This can be on a website or in a PDF document that can be sent trough e-mail.

Thanks to print on demand services it has become very affordable to make your own physical portfolio exactly how you want it. You can choose the size, paper quality and the material the cover is made of. Most printers will shop world wide and offer some sort of service to help you design the artist portfolio of your reams.

Don’t wait any longer and create your own professional artist portfolio.

4.4- Join an Art Community With Like Minded Artists.

In the vast landscape of creativity, finding your artistic vision is a journey both personal and shared. As an artist, the path to unlocking your unique perspective often flourishes through connection, and in the digital era, online artist communities stand as transformative havens for this exploration.
