What material we ask you to submit through the participation form
Only invited artists can submit artwork for publication in Art Ideal.
We request that you submit 6 images through the form. Our curatorial and design teams come together to make the final selection and professional editing, in order to present your work and career in an elegant, ideal way.
We highly recommend a short personal statement, in first person, for example, "My work is about... I am inspired by... Art is..." We have found that each page becomes more interesting to the reader when you reveal more about the person behind the artwork. Readers are captivated by bold statements that may further engage their imagination and thinking. Please no text over 160 words.
We will ask you to provide a short biography text. Our professional literary editor will see over the text and make sure it reads perfectly in English. If necessary, the text will be edited to fit the space.
Optionally, we your country of birth and where you live. The format for both of the above is
Example: 1958, France
Example: Paris, France
Your image captions should follow this format: Title of Work - Media used Dimensions, Price
Example: Portrait of Paul - Oil on canvas 12 x 15 cm €1.500
