44 Examples of Inspiring Artist Websites

Last Updated September 9 2020

Written By Steve Benjamins

A good artist website should showcase your art. Think of how art galleries are designed— they are functional and austere with plenty of whitespace on walls. They do this to get out of the way and showcase the art. Remember, people didn’t come to your website to look at an artistic looking website— they came to look at art: paintings, sculptures or photos. Don’t make the mistake of trying to make the website it’s own piece of art— that rarely goes well.
