How to support artists

The artistic creation is an activity that greatly contributes to the enrichment of our culture and society. However, it is often difficult for artists to make a living from their art, and they need the support of the public to continue creating. That’s why it’s important to consider the different ways to support artists, whether by buying their artwork or helping them gain visibility. In this article, we will explore different methods to support artists and understand why this is essential for the survival of art and culture.

If you’re a bit of a geek, buying an NFT can be a great way to support an artist while standing out among your friends.

But what is an NFT?

An NFT, or “Non-Fungible Token,” is a unique digital asset that authenticates ownership of a virtual object, such as an image or a video. Unlike traditional cryptocurrencies, each NFT is unique and has its own value based on its rarity and authenticity.

The advantage for the buyer is owning a one-of-a-kind piece that may potentially increase in value over time. And for the artist, selling an NFT can be an additional source of income while ensuring ownership of their work.

If you want to buy an NFT, you can find online marketplaces dedicated to this purpose. But be careful, just like buying a physical piece of art, it’s important to verify the legality of the transaction and the reputation of the seller.

In summary, buying an NFT is an excellent way to support an artist while acquiring a unique and original object. So why not give this new experience a try?

Ah, copyright! We can’t escape it, even if we’d like to sometimes… But to support an artist in a legal and ethical way, it’s important to respect their rights.

To use a work of art, you need to obtain permission from the artist or their rights holders. Yes, you can’t just copy and paste an image on your website or print it on a poster for your living room without being authorized!

This authorization, of course, comes at a cost, which varies depending on the intended use of the work. To find out how much it costs, it’s necessary to consult the current rates according to the type of use and the medium. But just because it’s expensive doesn’t mean we should skip it! If we want to support an artist, we also need to respect their artwork and intellectual property.

So if you want to use a work of art, remember to ask for permission and to pay the artist as they deserve. It’s a simple gesture, but it can make a big difference in an artist’s career.

And if you’re an artist, don’t forget to protect your copyright by joining ADAGP or an equivalent author society. Because by protecting their rights, an artist can live off their art and continue to create works that make us dream!

Let’s all agree to respect copyright and support artists in a fair and just way.

Make a donation

If you’re not an art collector or a blockchain enthusiast, don’t worry! You can still support an artist by making a donation. Donations are of great importance to artists as they allow them to continue creating and sharing their work with the world. To make a donation, simply look up information on the artist’s website or contact them directly. And don’t underestimate the power of a small donation – even a few euros or Tezos can make a big difference for an emerging artist. In addition to supporting creativity, donations can also have tax benefits for the donor, so everyone wins!


For an artist, visibility is essential to become known and expand their fan base. Fortunately, there are many ways to help an artist increase their visibility online or elsewhere. First of all, don’t hesitate to share an artist’s artworks on social media. This will allow your friends and followers to discover the artist and their work. Additionally, you can also help an artist by attending events where they exhibit their works, writing articles about them, or recommending them to other people who are looking to buy art. Ultimately, the more visible an artist is, the more likely they are to succeed and continue creating amazing works for everyone’s enjoyment. So, don’t hesitate to help artists gain visibility!

To sum up, we have explored a variety of impactful ways to support artists, including investing in NFTs, making donations, respecting copyrights, and promoting their work on social media. Each of these actions can make a significant difference in the lives of artists and help them continue pursuing their passion. I urge you to take action and support the artists who inspire you, enabling them to keep creating and sharing their art with the world. Together, we can contribute to the advancement of culture and art in our society.
