Artist CV

An artist CV should reflect the creativity of the artist. The first aspect of your CV that the recruiters will notice is the layout. Ensure that it is creative and yet still maintains the same professional look. Art is a practical field and the most experienced artists are not always the most talented.

It is a gift you are born with and that can be developed with time but some people are lucky to develop advanced skills earlier. Work experience therefore may not be of great importance to recruiters. The only way you can prove to the recruiters that you are the best person for the job is by including a sample of your work together with your CV.
