Getting Discovered As an Artist

Updated on December 5, 2006

Becoming a famous artist can be a difficult challenge, but here are a few ideas to help get your art visible to the public:

1. Display your works of art at a convention, online, or at a gallery. Getting your art noticed will increase your chances of getting some potential buyers.

2. Offer public displays of your artistic talents at an arts show or in an open area.

3. Donate some of your art pieces to charity fundraisers. Although you won't get money, you may attract fans that will want to buy more of your work directly from you.

4. Paint large murals on walls or buildings (provided you gain permission from a property owner and/or the city). This could be a defining piece that makes your name known in the art world.

These ideas may not make you famous, but they can help to get you on your way to becoming a famous artist.

      Hi,I'm 12 years old, and I've already had people see me working and offer to buy my work. I'm opening an Etsy store, to show and sell my work. I decorated my guitar case, and I've had people commission me. I was just wondering how to be more active in the art community, and this helped alot. Thanks!
