Artist Guide to Promote Art by Miabo Enyadike

Artist Guide to Promote Art

Art is truly in the eyes of the beholder, love what they see immediately but the purchasing of the Art is a different ball game. People tend to make a decision to buy your art after several views that is the way it works.  For some fewer views and they buy, while others several views before a collector makes a purchase.

The reason for these disparities is sometimes, name recognition could prompt a quick purchase or good presentation of your Art could be a factor.

 While on the other hand poor presentation, costing, need, and relevance could lead to delays.

 The issues here are relative, there is no quick magic to sell your art, you just have to put it out there for people to see and decide for themselves.

 I have been fortunate to be in the Art business for over 20 years, so I have a bit of experience on how it goes, the disappointments and the highs work hand in hand with Artist and their Artworks, you just have to be dug in and reinvent yourself in order to remain relevant to your collectors and patrons.

So I have decided, to share the five go-to ways I use to self promote my Art and rein in the sales.


1. Have Your Social Media Accounts do the Talking for You

Yes, you read well, allow your social media accounts to do the talking for your Art. Create Art accounts that speak about your Artworks, post constantly and tell stories around your Art that are compelling and fun that will draw in the audience and turn them into collectors.

               My Facebook Page

I have created my accounts and I post constantly on a daily basis about my Artwork because that is my content that I share with a targeted audience.

My Pinterest account

I totally share my Art, on my social media pages constantly these platforms create for me an audience that views and follows what I do.

These are the platforms I use, the most successful of them for me has been Facebook.

Facebook Instagram

Twitter  → Pinterest


2.  Host Art Parties:

I love Art parties they are intimate and informal, it could be your birthday or you can create an event and let your guest know, that it is all about celebrating your new Artworks.

 Provide good food and drinks create an informal ambiance, that makes your artworks the center of discussion


3.Show Friends and Family What  You Do:

This is displaying your art in a rather informal setting. Invite family and friends and explain to them what your artwork is all about.

 Art is word of mouth, they may not collect your work personally, but trust me they will talk about you and your artwork, and sometimes they help you spread it on social media and that can lead to sales.

4.Create Workshops, Webinars, 

Everyone loves something that has meaning and impacts their lives. It could be workshops, webinars, and courses that help people.

As an Artist, it is a way for me
to self-promote my artworkIt is also all about helping other artists achieve the same success.

5.Solo Exhibitions | Collaborations

Solo exhibitions are great but they entail a lot of money and most Artists cannot afford this. For me, I love solo exhibitions, that way my artwork gets all the attention and I can focus on selling to potential collectors. 

The collaboration in this context is asking friends or family members who have influence and are in certain circles that can pull in the right crowd, to be part sponsors and you share a decent percentage of your sales with them.


These five ways are my own tried and tested ways that yielded good Art sales for me. I know there are other creative ways out there but at least, I have shared mine. ......Enjoy.
