Anyone professional artists can sell art on Vango. When we say professional however, we are not referring to your education or show history. An arts education is certainly helpful, but some of the best artists on our site are self taught. Showing in galleries is an awesome experience and can teach you so much about professionally documenting your work and writing solid artist statements. But not everyone lives in a thriving arts community.
When we say professional, we mean an artist who treats her work with the respect and care it deserves. This means taking the very best photographs. This means thinking about what you are doing and why you are doing it. Don’t just copy from the artists you love, think about why you love their work and build off of that. Think about what your work means and how you can push that to greater heights. Constantly challenge yourself. Use good materials. Don’t think like someone selling crafts at the flea-market, think like an artist who has something valuable to say to her community. Your work has the potential to change lives, treat it with the respect it deserves.
