Portfolio

Artists often experience hassles in the first step itself - how to make a professional portfolio?. As an artist, we tend to create portfolios that include extra information, 100s of artworks and have a fancy presentation. In the art world, these types of portfolios are frowned upon. It is considered unprofessional to approach any established gallery, collector, museums, art contests or dealers without considerable preparation.

SK art studios is dedicated to helping artists create a professional portfolio. After an extensive research in the art market, we innovated a technique of mapping relevant elements in your artworks, bio, statement, and cv to create a standard portfolio. We closely engage with the artists and follow a step-by-step process to create a professional portfolio. Below, we describe the steps in detail:

  1. Submission of artworks: The artist is asked to provide HD photographs of artworks, for the review, clicked in a certain format with the details mentioned about the artwork. 

  2. Business Plan sheet: SK art studios shares a business plan sheet to understand the vision, mission, goals and inspiration of an artist. These data points become the valuable insights to be used in the creation of portfolio.

  3. Form Submission: critical details such as residential city where the artist is practicing, birth year, selected exhibitions, shows, gallery representations are submitted by the artist through a form shared by the representative expert.

  4. Selection of artworks: Selection is the key to creating an impactful portfolio. Our experts engage with the artists to identify consistencies among the available artworks and their theme of work. Accordingly, art pieces are selected for creating a portfolio.

  5. Biography: We understand the artists's mission, vision, goal and the impact they wish to have in the society through their artworks. Our experts conduct a call with the artists and gather relevant information, resulting in a suitable biography, artist's statement, cv creation.
