Why Write an Artist Bio With ChatGPT?

Many people freeze when writing about themselves. It’s understandable, there’s a conceit about self-promotion, and that’s what a bio is in many ways. It’s putting your best foot forward and telling the world what an interesting person you are, and that’s not so easy.

It’s a very fine line between presenting yourself as a confident likable person and being a self-obsessed bore. Chatgpt might be the neutral guide you need. 

The trick is to find a way of letting Chatgpt figure out who you are so it can write about you. Chatgpt only scrapes the internet and calculates the most likely words that would follow the previous one. It’s not intelligent. It’s as good as the prompt you feed it, and you don’t have to be a techy, I’m not.

You can engineer a reasonable prompt by using a prompt generator. What’s that? It’s an initial prompt that you feed into Chatgpt to start the ball rolling.

It processes the prompt and asks you what you want to write about, in this case, we are going to ask ChatGPT 4, “How to write an artist bio”. It then asks you a series of pertinent questions and writes a prompt for you at every stage.

It does this continually until the questions are exhausted, or you are!

There is no point explaining it, I will have to show you how I did it for this experiment. You can decide for yourself how good it is.

Before we get into the nitty-gritty, let’s be clear about what I mean by artist bio. It will help if we are both on the same page.

What Is An Artist Bio? 

Artist Biography (Bio)

This is a short narrative that focuses on the artist and their practice. It is intended to intrigue the reader with a snapshot of the artist, their style, medium, subject matter, and mission. The aim is to intrigue and delight the reader.

I link my short sidebar bio to an “about me” page where I expand on my story in an attempt to get my website visitors more engaged and stay on my site for longer. This keeps Google happy and helps with search engine optimization.

An effective artist bio, on a personal website is written as a good story, or better still, as a hero’s journey.

A simplified hero’s journey goes something like this:  

  • Ordinary dull existence
  • The call to adventure
  • Major obstacle or disaster to overcome
  • Triumph

A typical biography is about the artist and their personal and professional life, experiences. They usually include the artist’s education (including self-taught), name, and country of birth. It should be engaging and accessible to a broad audience, not just to people in the art world.

Artist Statement:

An artist statement, in contrast, is more about the artist’s current work and discusses the themes, techniques, and ideas that inspire them. It often provides insight into the meaning and intentions behind the artist’s work.

Ideally, you should use simple English. Many artists go wrong by overdoing their philosophy and using artspeak and impenetrable jargon. An artist’s statement should be a clear and direct message from the artist to the viewer, about the art. It should be informal, conversational, and unpretentious.

Artist CV (Curriculum Vitae)

This is a formal record of the artist’s professional history and achievements, including exhibitions, awards, residencies, publications, and education. It is a document continuously updated as the artist’s career evolves.

Unlike a biography, or statement, an artist’s CV is not narrative—it is more akin to a resume, focusing on factual information.

In summary, the artist’s biography tells the story of their career, the statement shares the artist’s creative philosophy, and the CV provides a detailed professional history. Each one serves a unique purpose and can be used in different contexts to help promote and explain the artist’s work and art career.

Why Do You Need an Artist Bio?

An artist biography serves several roles for an artist. It is all about presenting the artist in an interesting, credible, and personal way. A professional bio is crucial

Here are a few reasons why an artist needs an effective bio:

  1. Professional Introduction: An artist bio introduces the artist to viewers, potential buyers, gallery owners, and other artists. It’s a first impression and the easiest way for someone unfamiliar with the artist’s work to get to know them on a more personal level. 
  2. The Context: A bio helps to contextualize an artist’s work. It can provide information about their influences, and the personal experiences that inform the viewer about their art.
  3. Promotion and Marketing: An artist bio is a promotional tool. It helps to communicate the artist’s unique perspective and skills. It can generate interest in their artwork and set them apart from the competition.
  4. Building Trust and Connecting: A good artist bio can help build a connection between the artist and their admirers. By sharing personal stories or perspectives, the artist can engage the viewer on an emotional level.

An artist’s biography is typically required in the following places:

  1. Artist Website: An artist’s bio page is an essential component of their website, helping to create a rounded picture of the artist for visitors to the site.
  2. Exhibition Catalogues and Brochures: These often include the bios of participating artists to give readers a sense of the artist’s background and influences.
  3. A Press Release and Media Kits: If an artist is having a show or making an announcement, a bio is often included in the press materials.
  4. Social Media Platforms: Artists often include a brief bio in their social media profiles to introduce themselves to potential followers.
  5. Gallery Representation: Galleries typically display an artist’s bio alongside their work to provide context to potential buyers.
  6. Grant Applications: When applying for grants or residencies, artists often need to include their bio to provide background information about their art career to date.

Having a well-written, engaging, and up-to-date artist’s biography is an essential tool for any successful artist.

How to Write An Artist Bio Using ChatGPT 

I was watching yet more Youtube videos and came across a channel called Income Stream Surfers and found a useful prompt. I’ve linked to his channel, but in all honesty, he rambles on incessantly and his videos are all over the place, consequently I can’t find the original video. Never mind, this prompt works well.

We will continue this iterative process with me providing additional information to you and you updating the prompt in the Revised prompt section until it’s complete.

a) Revised prompt: 

“Help me write an engaging and compelling bio for my website, presenting me as a graphite artist with over 20 years of professional experience. I specialize in realistic wildlife art, particularly depicting big cats, great apes, and elephants. My career took a significant turn upon discovering the market for selling art prints. Heavily influenced by Gary Hodges, my work is characterized by photo-realistic pencil work using predominantly Pentel mechanical pencils. My unique reference photos are inspired by my extensive travels in East and Southern Africa, as well as India and Indonesia.

My audience tell me that my art resonates with them because I manage to convey my love for wildlife and manage to bring out the personality and character of my animal subjects My major turning point was when I realized that I could make money if I specialized in one style and genre. I started life as a pastel painter, with the added handicap that I am colorblind. My epiphany came when I realized that I could make money with black and white art.

Chat wrote:

Thank you for sharing more about your journey and how your art impacts your audience. Your career shift from pastel painting to graphite art and the reason behind it will make an interesting part of your bio. Let’s revise the prompt accordingly:

a) Revised prompt: 

“Assist me in creating an engaging and compelling bio for my website as a seasoned graphite artist with over 20 years of professional experience. I specialize in realistic wildlife art, notably depicting big cats, great apes, and elephants, using predominantly Pentel mechanical pencils. My work draws heavily from my extensive travels in East and Southern Africa, India, and Indonesia for reference photos. My art resonates with my audience due to my love for wildlife and the character of the animal subjects that I portray. A major turning point in my career was the realization that specialization in one style and genre, specifically black and white art due to my colorblindness, could be profitable. This led me to transition from pastel painting to graphite art. I regularly contribute to ‘The World Land Trust’ and use my art to raise awareness for wildlife conservation. My aim is to inspire wonder, and appreciation for the natural world, and to connect with the public on an emotional level. As part of my future aspirations, I plan on sharing my knowledge and demonstrating how to make a living with art. Please guide me on effectively conveying these details in my bio and provide examples of effective artist bios.”

b) Suggestions: This revised prompt is already quite thorough, however, if you would like to add more details you could consider:

  • The scale and complexity of your artworks
  • A memorable moment or experience during your travels that had a significant impact on your work
  • The types of prints and other formats your artwork is available in

c) Questions:

  • Can you share details about the scale and complexity of your artworks?
  • Was there a particular moment or experience during your travels that significantly influenced your work?
  • In what formats (e.g., originals, prints, merchandise) is your artwork available?

I wrote:

That’s enough thank you. Please write the final prompt. 

Chat wrote:

Absolutely, here’s the final version of your prompt:

“Help me craft a compelling and engaging artist bio for my website. As a graphite artist with over 20 years of professional experience, I specialize in realistic wildlife art. My primary subjects are big cats, great apes, and elephants, captured in striking detail with my Pentel mechanical pencils. My art is deeply influenced by my extensive travels in East and Southern Africa, India, and Indonesia, and my work is known to resonate with audiences for its ability to portray the personality and character of these majestic animals. A pivotal moment in my career was the realization that I could make a living specializing in black and white art, despite being colorblind, leading to my transition from pastel painting to graphite art. I regularly support ‘The World Land Trust’ and use my art to raise awareness for wildlife conservation. My goal is to evoke a sense of wonder, foster appreciation for the natural world, and form an emotional connection with the public. In the future, I intend to share my expertise to help other artists achieve their dreams. Please guide me in effectively conveying these points in my bio and provide examples of well-written artist bios.”

I opened a fresh chat by tapping the “+ New Chat” box at the top left and pasted my new custom prompt in the “Send a message” box as before. I aborted the first results because ChatGPT wrote it in the third person.

I started again and this time added this “written in the 1st person” to the end of the prompt.

This was the initial result and it didn’t read in the tone of voice I would use.

Chat Wrote this in large paragraphs:

Creating an engaging and compelling bio is all about telling your unique story. Here’s an example of how you might structure your biography:

“Hello there! I’m [Your Name], a graphite artist with a passion for capturing the beauty and majesty of the world’s most powerful creatures. My love affair with wildlife art began over 20 years ago, and the intensity and devotion only continue to grow.

My journey as an artist is as diverse and captivating as the subjects I draw. I am heavily inspired by my extensive travels through the rugged landscapes of East and Southern Africa, the bustling wildlife of India, and the raw beauty of Indonesia. These rich and immersive experiences feed into my work, allowing me to depict the distinct personalities and characteristics of the animals I encounter with an intimacy that resonates with audiences worldwide.

Art for me is more than a passion—it’s a medium of expression, even when life throws challenges. My world might lack color, due to my colorblindness, but that hasn’t stopped me from creating realistic wildlife art. A transformative moment in my career came when I realized that I could turn my perceived weakness into my strength—color wasn’t a necessity for creating compelling art. Thus, I traded my pastel paints for my now trusty Pentel mechanical pencils, and the transition from color to graphite art unfolded like a poetic narrative.

My canvas features everything from the imposing majesty of big cats to the emotive gaze of great apes and the serene grandeur of elephants. Each stroke of the pencil, each detail, aims to foster a profound appreciation for the natural world and evoke a sense of wonder in the viewer. It’s about creating an emotional bond, connecting you with these majestic creatures on a visceral level.

But my art also serves a larger purpose—it is a call to action. As a staunch supporter of ‘The World Land Trust’, I leverage my art to raise awareness for wildlife conservation. These magnificent beings that inspire my work need our help, and through my art, I aspire to contribute to their survival.

Looking ahead, I aim to share my artistic journey and knowledge with others, helping aspiring artists to find their voice and achieve their dreams. Because I believe art is not just about creating—it’s about inspiring, sharing, and nurturing a sense of community.

Thank you for sharing this journey with me. I invite you to explore my world, appreciate the fine details of my subjects, and join me in preserving the beauty that surrounds us.”

I hope this helps! You can always modify this to better fit your style and personal story.

I wrote:

Write this again in a casual tone but without the superlatives and hyperbole.

Chat wrote:

Absolutely, let’s adjust the tone and language to be more casual and straightforward:

“Hi! I’m [Your Name], and I make realistic wildlife art with my trusty graphite pencils. For over 20 years, I’ve been drawing some of the world’s coolest creatures—big cats, great apes, and elephants are my favorites.

I’ve been lucky enough to travel a bunch, and have spent a lot of time in places like East and Southern Africa, India, and Indonesia. These trips have had a huge impact on my work, helping me to see and draw animals in a way that people really connect with.

The funny thing is, I’m actually colorblind. There was a time when I used to paint with pastels, but once I realized I could make just as good, if not better, art in black and white, I went all-in with graphite. It’s a change that’s been really good for me.

Beyond just creating art, I also try to make a difference. I’m a big supporter of ‘The World Land Trust’ and I use my drawings to get the word out about wildlife conservation. I think it’s pretty cool that I can use my art to help out animals that I care so much about.

In the future, I’m hoping to help other artists learn and grow. I’ve got a lot of experiences to share and it would be awesome to see more folks achieving their dreams in art.

Thanks for taking the time to check out my stuff! I hope you like it, and maybe even feel inspired to help out with wildlife conservation too.”

This version is more casual and conversational, and should help your audience feel more directly connected to you and your work.

I wrote:

Write a summary again using 120 – 150 words. No fluff.

Chat wrote:

Of course, here’s a more condensed version without any fluff:

“I’m [Your Name], a graphite artist with 20 years of experience specializing in wildlife art. My focus is on big cats, apes, and elephants, influenced by my travels across Africa, India, and Indonesia. Despite being colorblind, I successfully transitioned from pastel to graphite, mastering the art of black and white. My artwork supports wildlife conservation, resonating with audiences for its detailed portrayal of animals’ unique personalities. My art serves different purposes: evoking wonder for nature’s beauty and raising awareness for ‘The World Land Trust.’ Future plans include mentoring budding artists.”

This version is a straight-to-the-point, fluff-free summary of your work and experiences as an artist.

Not too bad.

In hindsight I wish I hadn’t said I support the “World Land Trust” It overstates my involvement, I’m only a supporter.

The bio needs editing so this is my hand-edited version:

“Hi, my name is Kevin Hayler, a graphite artist specializing in wildlife art for well over 20 years. I focus on drawing the iconic wildlife I’ve encountered on my travels across Africa, India, and Indonesia. 

Why pencil? mainly because I’m colorblind! I found success when I transitioned from struggling to paint to mastering the art of black and white. I didn’t look back. 

My artwork resonates with collectors from across the world. They appreciate my painstaking attention to detail and ability to capture the character of my subjects. My art serves to evoke wonder for nature and raise public awareness for conservation.

My future plans include helping other artists find success and make a living doing what they love”

Now if I had writer’s block this bio is easily good enough to be getting on with.

FAQs 

1. Do You Write Your Bio in The 1st or 3rd Person?

Conventional wisdom dictates that an artist’s biography is typically written in the third person. The theory goes that this style gives the bio a more objective tone and makes it appear as if an external unbiased observer is describing the artist’s career.

It makes the biography sound more professional and formal. This is usually the tone desired on a gallery’s website, in an exhibition catalog, or in a press release.

Some artists, including myself, choose to write in the first person for a more personal and intimate approach. If I am talking about myself, on my own website or on social media I cannot write in the third person without feeling like a fraud.

Anyway, I don’t want to be detached. It’s hard enough to connect to your viewer/reader as it is. I want to connect and my work to resonate on an emotional level. 

Even bios written in the third person will benefit from quoting the artist who is speaking in the first person. 

It’s all about the context. Write in the third person in an informal setting and in the first person when you are directly involved with the viewer. 

2. How Long Should An Artist’s Bio Be?

The perfect artist bio is brief and to the point. Attention spans are short, and there is only so much time in the day. A bio is only a summary, not a life story. The key points are enough. Your bio is a snippet that opens up a glimpse of your world and intrigues your viewer. 

Keep your bio to 150 words or less. Galleries will certainly want very concise bios. Think about the gallery viewer. Do they want to read long paragraphs of text each time they look at a picture? No, of course not, they want to skim through quickly and get back to the art. 

Your website should have an artist “About Me” page. You can expand your story there, adding plenty of imagery to go with it. Your bio should also appear on your sidebar with a mugshot, and ideally at the bottom of every post. These can be a short paragraph

Your on-page bio serves to personalize your work and maintain a presence throughout the visit. It also signals to Google that you are a real person behind the site and helps boost your EEAT (Experience, Expertise, Authoritativeness, and Trustworthiness). important ranking factors for search engines.

These posts are related to writing your bio:

3. What Should an Artist Bio Include?

An artist bio should include and summarize some of the following:

  • Your Name (and photo online)
  • Medium(s), 
  • Subject matter or Theme
  • Style and Techniques,
  • Inspiration and Influences.

You can mention your education and country, but keep it brief. No one wants to know your life story.

A great bio will elevate your art in the mind of your admirer and I know from experience, that a good bio will tip the balance in your favor when a customer is wavering. An interesting story is that important.

4. What Should An Artist Bio Exclude?

In many ways what you leave out is more important than what you put in. 

First impressions count and it’s so easy to get it wrong and ruin the experience. It really is make or break. A customer is not buying a picture alone. They are buying a feeling. We buy art for emotional reasons and a bad impression will destroy the pleasure and lose you any chance of a sale. 

Avoid these common mistakes:

  • Hyping Yourself Up: Cut the crap, everyone will see through a fake, and even if it’s all true, people will not believe you, or worse still, think you’re conceited. Be yourself and write in your own voice. Don’t downplay your art but certainly don’t brag or name-drop.
  • List of Career Achievements: No one cares about your personal milestones, prizes, or your master’s degree. It’s boring! Your exhibition history belongs in your CV, not in your bio.
  • Script Fonts: Never use a florid “arty” font in your bio. If it’s hard to read, people will skip it. Use a standard regular font and no smaller than 16 points online.
  • Artspeak and Jargon: It impresses no one. Trying to be intelligent, sophisticated, and clever, will alienate and underwhelm most readers. Write in clear simple informal English, like a normal human being.
  • Spelling Mistakes: Spelling mistakes, bad punctuation, and poor grammar will get noticed. Use Grammarly and read your bio out loud. Any clunky English will become apparent. It’s a good idea to ask a trusted friend to read your bio for you. Just to be sure you have everything right.
  • Large Blocks of Text: Break up your text into short sentences and short paragraphs. A block of text will deter readers. Don’t be afraid to write one-line paragraphs.

How to Write an Artist Bio Using ChatGPT: Final Thoughts

ChatGPT has its uses. There is so much hype about it at the moment but let’s not get carried away. It has its limitations. AI writers are no substitute for lived experience and a human perspective. It’s true that AI is only as good as the prompt, and it’s only as good as the information it scrapes too. 

ChatGPT works best when the facts are less critical. It works well when you can feed it the information you require and ask it to perform a task. That’s why using a prompt generator to write a custom prompt, on your behalf, works so well. 

In my opinion, ChatGPT is great for writer’s block. The first sentence is often the hardest thing to write and Ai is a great way to get started.
