How to Write an Effective Artist Bio

by John R. Math

Facebook Twitter More...

An effective artist biography (bio) is necessary information to have as part of the artist's presentation to any viewers and interested parties of their artwork. A well written and composed artist bio serves to help a reader to connect to the artist and to the artist's artwork.

An artist bio, when written and created correctly will provide the reader with a greater understanding as to the artist's art, the artist's motivation for creating their art and finally it will provide a guide or a means for a viewer to interpret the artist's art. In these terms, the importance of an artist's bio cannot be stressed enough!

What should be included in an effective artist's bio?

1. Anyone or anything that has influenced the artist's artworks.

2. Any education or training in the field of art.

3. Any related experience in the field of art.

4. A summary of the artist's artistic philosophy.

5. Any artistic insights or techniques that are employed by the artist.

The FestivalNet Giving Tree

Our Giving Tree supports organizations working to make the world a better place. FestivalNet Staff members take turns selecting organizations to receive a percentage of our gross revenues. This month's charity was chosen by our Database Manager, Sara Potts.

Sara says of her choice, "My choice is Hand of Hope. It is a project by an organization (Joyce Meyer Ministries) that I regularly support, and have for years. They do great work all over the world, but this one project, Well of Life, provides wells and clean drinking water to over 25 countries. It is such a vital thing that we all take for granted."
