There are a lot of struggling artists out there. This is a sad reality that every artist should understand. Making a name for yourself as an artist takes time and effort. In fact, there are those who are also working odd jobs just to pay the bill and just for them to continuously work as an artist.
What you should do is to have a plan on how you can build a name for yourself. Here are some strategies that you can follow.
First, you want to make sure that your work stands out. You want to have an identity as an artist. That means you have to find your own style. For instance, what makes Yayoi Kusama’s work stand out from the rest of the other artists? That’s the dots that are always part of her work. You have to understand that though there are artists who play safe, you want to be known for something that is unique.
Once you already have your own style, next, you want to get your name out there. You want to make sure that everyone is going to remember your name. You can only do this by having your own website or by having your own gallery.
