COMPLETE YOUR BIOGRAPHY  + ARTIST STATEMENT

Step 8 – Fill out the "YOUR PROFILE + ARTIST STATEMENT" section with your Biography and Artist Statement.  Every day collectors ask us for more information about artists they like. Usually this is because the profile section has not been filled in, so if you have not included any information about yourself -- where you studied, exhibition history and an artist's statement -- please add it to your profile information. 

This kind of information can increase your chances of selling work and being noticed by curators. You can update these sections of your account by going to Account- Profile Information. Below are the following tips on how to do so. 

Complete Your Biography 

Finding out more about you as an artist is very important to art collectors who are considering buying your work, as well as to our own team when selecting artworks to be featured in collections and special series.

Your bio should include such information as: where you were born and raised; where you currently live; your education; prizes and awards you've won; exhibitions that you’ve taken part in; and collections (both private and public) that include your work.

We recommend that you include the following info in your bio:

  • Artists you've worked under/with
  • Prizes and awards you've won
  • Exhibitions that you’ve taken part in
  • Collections (both private and public) which include your work. 

Complete Your Artist Statement

An Artist Statement is a basic description of your works and your reason for creating them. A successful artist statement clearly explains the reason you've made your work. We recommend that an artist statement be no longer than 200 words. 

Some questions that you should consider when crafting your artist statement include: 

  • What is the subject matter of my work?
  • What is my work about?
  • How do I make my work?
  • Where do I find the images I use as inspiration?
  • How do I want my audience to respond to my work?
  • How does my work compare to historical or contemporary artwork?

PHOTOGRAPH YOUR ARTWORK

One of the first things you must do in order to begin selling on Rising Art Star is to photograph your artwork, so you can share your works with collectors. 

Your image must be:

    • A JPEG or PNG file in RGB color format (not CMYK)
    • Image can be uploaded of any dimension but we recommend you to upload image with dimension of 1024x1024 (we plan to post images to Instagram and a square size woks best
    • Less than 15MB

Please read below for some tips and important information on how to produce great quality photographs of your artwork. 

 

Lighting

Color Balance and Exposure - The color of the room, temperatures and use of flash can all distort the color balance, resulting in blues, yellows and greys that really should more closely resemble white.

Harsh Shadows and Reflections - Ensure your light-source provides even color and no directional shadows or reflections, which can distract from your artwork.

 

Quality

Noise And/Or Compression - Avoid excessive noise by using a low ISO, (ideally between 100-200), or by shooting in sufficient light. (A cloudy day can be ideal, as the clouds work like a giant softbox). Check to ensure your camera is shooting at its highest quality settings and the file is saved at maximum quality.

 Out Of Focus/Motion Blur - Review images at 100% when choosing the best shot, to ensure you also choose the best focus. (By shooting with sufficient light, you decrease the likelihood of camera shake when shooting hand-held).
 
Post- Production Over Filtering - Some files may benefit with post-production by adjusting color, brightness or contrast to more closely resemble the actual artwork. However, files that have been heavily post-processed, affecting confusion of medium or quality (color range) of artwork are subject to deactivation.
 
Upsampling - Increasing the file size only decreases quality. Instead of the misconception it will allow a file to be printed at a larger size, it actually decreases the quality in which the file will print.
 

Intrusive Digital Signatures Or Text - Artwork celebrates the signature of the artists, representing ownership and creation; however, digital watermarks or in camera date and times make your work appear less valuable.

 

Composition 

Parallel Angles/Rotation - If you must tilt artwork to take a photograph, ensure the camera is also at a parallel angle. A square or rectangle should have even edges.

Borders and Padding - Crop excessive blank space, artwork borders, mattes and padding. Adding extra space will not bypass you from minimum size requirements.

Composition: Rotation 90º-180º - Artwork should be properly rotated upon submission.
 
Art Only - Increasing the file size only decreases quality. Instead of the misconception it will allow a file to be printed at a larger size, it actually decreases the quality in which the file will print.
