With the creation of any great piece of art comes the task of finding someone to see the value in the piece. For male figure art, finding a buyer, as well as knowing what to price the piece at, can seem like a daunting task. Knowing where to begin can help ease the mind of the seller and smooth the process.
The first thing to keep in mind is don’t push too hard on the credentials. If you are an artist who has been featured in galleries or who is trying to become the next big artist, credentials may seem like half the battle. However, when it comes to selling your art it is important to allow the piece to stand for itself. Trying to sell who you are as an artist with every piece can seem desperate and scare off some potential buyers. The male figure is not an easy project, capturing the curves and the musculature is an impressive feat in and of itself. If the art can grab a viewer’s eye, why does it matter where that artist studies or how often their work has been exhibited?
