“Art doesn’t have to be pretty. It has to be meaningful.” -Duane Hanson
What Style of Art Sells Best?
Passion is defined as a strong emotion that is barely controllable. Why did you start creating art? You had a passion for it. There was something that you saw that inspired you to create. Once you started your passion grew. You felt like it was your way to communicate to the world.
When you started selling your artwork or if you are thinking of selling your artwork your passion for art was placed on the side burner. Your main concern was to sell every piece that you have created. If a piece did not sell you would start to question why it did not sell.
Many questions would pop up in your head.
Am I good enough?
Maybe I should try creating this instead of that.
Maybe I am using the wrong medium.
Why is that style of art selling?
These questions are often asked in the beginning of an artist’s career. It is ok to ask these questions, but the answer you are looking is right in front of you. The art that will sell best for you is the style that you have a passion to create.
There are customers for all artists
Is there art that is better than others?
I truly believe that all art is equal. In my opinion art is only as good as the eyes seeing it. Everyone will have a different opinion about a piece of art.
Some people might like the color while others might not like different colors. Some people might like that it is realistic while others might want a looser look. Some people might like the medium while others would like a different medium.
Whose opinion is correct?
I believe everyone is correct. Everyone has a specific taste that moves them. If a piece of art moves them then that is the best art in their mind. That would be a potential customer.
The great thing about art is that there are so many different styles that people can connect with.
To sum it up:
What style of art sells best? It is what you love to create. To sell your art you will just need to find the people that like your style. They are out there and with a well-planned marketing strategy you will be able to be successful with your art business.
