Visual Artists Finding the Art Print Market Profitable
Smart marketing visual artists have discovered there are ways to thrive in today's uneven changing markets. They have learned to advance their art careers by leveraging evolving opportunities and new technology developments in today's art market.
In today’s challenging art market, visual artists understandably experience anxiety about making a living as full-time artist. Nevertheless, despite the challenges, there are artists who are making these the best of times. They have discovered there are new, profitable opportunities to successfully market fine art reproductions of their original work.
Barney Davey, author of How to Profit from the Art Print Market, 2nd Edition says, “Examine the careers of successful artists today and you will find compelling art that resonates with collectors, marketing know-how and desire translated in action are always present.” According to Davey, visual artists who organize and execute workable plans around achievable goals are the ones who enjoy the greatest success today.

Additionally, a stark economy has created a void as it forced record numbers of companies from the market.

Now as older methods of selling one’s work traditionally through galleries continue to lose luster, new effective distribution channels have sprung up to fill the void and efficiently replace them.

They can use this power to capitalize on art-career marketing opportunities in ways unknown to previous generations of visual artists.
