A great way to make your artwork stand out is by showcasing how it looks in real life. One way that you can achieve this is by creating photo mockups of your art on the wall of a home or museum or even as a mural on the side of a building. Just make sure that you’re clear about these images being mockups, especially if you’re playing with the scale of your art. You could also do a photoshoot with your art to create a memorable artist photo for your artist bio or About Me page.
