The world of artists has long been a poor and lonely world. Only the very lucky few would get recognised during their lifetime. The majority would not get recognised at all. This is because the world of art is small and select. Now, however, we live in a digital age, which means that we also have the opportunity to do many things differently and to showcase our art all over the world. By using an online art portfolio, this is made even easier.
How to Use an Online Art Portfolio?
An online art portfolio, very simply put, allows you to upload images of any work of art that you have created. It is up to you to decide in what order to place these, or how to categorise them. However, most online art portfolio websites will give you fantastic hints and tips on how to make the most of your portfolio.
Once you have uploaded your images, it is time to share it around the world. Social media is a very strong tool and you should most definitely link it to your personal Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn page. You should also have a link to your portfolio in your online signature.
The wonderful thing about the internet is that you can now send your portfolio to art agencies, managers and art enthusiasts all over the world. You can send a link to your portfolio to a gallery in Hong Kong or to a buyer in Peru, without having to set foot out of your door. This opens up worlds of possibilities and gives you a much greater chance of becoming the next Andy Warhol, who achieved great fame during his lifetime, and not the next Van Gogh, who live his life in avid poverty.
