We use standard English conventions for proper names.
- Capitalize only the first letter of each name.
- Given name first, Family name second, unless the artist or designer is from China, Japan, Korea, Hungary, etc. and uses their cultural convention of Family name first, Given name second. Please abide by whichever convention the artist or designer uses professionally. Please note: when using the eastern name ordering that the display name field should be used (not the first name put in the family name field and vice versa).
When adding a new artist, fill out the suggested fields below for an accurate artist profile and increased visibility. *Note: Ensure all submitted information is correct (e.g. including capitalization). Once these fields are filled out, any subsequent changes will be under review by our team.
If you have any doubts, you can always look on Artsy.net to see if the artist is already on the site and how the artist is listed.
