This guide will walk you through adding an artist bio to your gallery profile page. This is referring to the section "Written Biography". Please note any bio you add will not be added to the Artist Profile page, but instead be listed on your own gallery profile page.
Please note the addition of Artist Bios is a benefit of a year-long subscription on Artsy. If you are a fair partner, you will not have ability to add an Artist Bio at this time.
We recommend using a word processor or text editor (like Google docs) to write your bios. This makes it easier to edit the bios and allows you to simply copy-and-paste the text into your CMS.
In CMS, choose the artist whose bio you’d like to upload, and click “edit.”
In some cases, Artsy may have already created a bio for your artist. If you’d like to add your own, toggle to “no.” In this case, the Artsy bio will display on the canonical artist’s page, whereas the bio you provide will display on your profile page, as well as any works by that artist from your inventory.
Now, simply paste your bio into the free text field. You have 2,000 characters (we recommend using only around 1,000). Accept the terms, hit “save changes,” and you’re done! Your bio will now appear live on your Gallery's Artsy profile page.
