Art selling can be a lucrative venture, yet not everyone finds success in it.
Many art sellers may assume their success is dependent on external circumstances; however, to truly become successful as artists requires hard work and persistence.
Sales in the art market tend to decline during global recessions; this year’s slump may not be as intense.
Types of Art That Sell
The art market is highly susceptible to trends, making it impossible to predict exactly which pieces will sell best by 2023. Some possibilities could include works focused on diversity and inclusion and increasing demand for eco-friendly art pieces.
Additionally, popular artists are making names for themselves with street art. This form of urban expression allows individuals to communicate social, political and personal messages while inspiring change – Alec Monopoly and Eduardo his Cobra have made names for themselves by filling cities with color and altering public space through street art.
Digital and new media art may be especially appealing to younger collectors. Such works combine text, images, audio and video into engaging experiences for viewers. Artists looking to reach a wider audience may create print-on-demand products like posters or postcards to sell online; thus generating income from each piece for extended periods.
Know Your Market
One way of selling art is using online platforms to promote it and host art shows; this provides you with a great opportunity to build a following and find potential buyers for your artwork.
Working with a gallery that represents artists is another option; doing your research before selecting one could prove essential in getting your art into front of potential buyers.
Print-on-demand services provide another great option for selling art. They allow you to reach a wider audience while potentially turning a larger profit than selling directly, while many services allow you to customize and sell various products based on your art (phone cases and stickers, for instance). It is key that you know your market well and select artwork that resonates with them for maximum sales success.
Utilise Social Media
As 2023 is so vast and varied, it can be hard to know exactly which works of art will make the cut in terms of sales. However, some trends could help predict which pieces may do well on the market such as an increase in diversity and inclusion initiatives, the demand for sustainable art pieces that promote environmental awareness and the continued rise of digital media art forms.
Social media can be an excellent way to market and sell your art, whether that means posting regularly with hashtags to increase visibility, collaborating on projects with other artists or reaching out to new ones to collaborate on collaborative efforts that draw more attention to your own and their art works.
One trend influencing art purchases in 2023 could be the growing interest in textured artworks, created through impasto painting techniques using thick paint applied using visible brushstrokes or palette-knife strokes. This style provides viewers with texture while adding energy and movement into a piece.
Create Limited Edition Prints
Prints can add variety and affordability to an art collection, while still maximising sales potential. However, it’s essential that sellers know the differences between art prints and original art in order to maximise sales potential.
When creating limited edition prints, it is crucial that each work meets the quality standard set forth by its edition. This helps maintain its integrity and make it more appealing to buyers. Furthermore, artists should dispose of any plates or negatives used during production in order to prevent any complications later on.
Limited edition prints are an effective way to increase the value of your art. By following our tips above, you may increase your chances of selling it before 2023 comes around! – Art Acacia Gallery & Advisory
