Founded in 2011, Rise Art is a curated online gallery that features artwork from talented artists around the world. Their goal? "We just want to make it easier for more people to own great art."
Given this mission to make fantastic artwork more widely available, Rise Art offers assistance with everything from advice to packing, shipping, and framing, and they even offer an art rental scheme so that you can trial a piece in your home to ensure you love how it fits into your interior scheme. From photographs and paintings to drawings, sculptures and more, their diverse and extensive collection features something for everyone and every decor style.
We've previously worked with Rise Art, featuring pieces from their collection in the Warehouse Home Apartment during London Design Festival 2017 and in the show apartments that we created at Avro Lofts for Urban Splash. Both of these projects feature in Warehouse Home Issue Seven.
Whether you're renting or buying, incorporating artwork into a scheme can bring it to life. Here, we select five of our favourite industrial themed artworks.
Hydro Electric by Gina Soden
Here in a disused powerplant, the ravages of time have intensified the decay of industrial structures and materials, giving this photograph an effect resembling watercolour.
Vitkovice #2 by Chris Temple
With its unique viewpoint, this realistic painting brings the framework of an abandoned steel mill in Vitkovice, Czech Republic, to life. Saturated colours give the raw, industrial features a softer side.
Forklift by Tommy Clarke
Captured from a bird’s eye vantage point, these enormous shipping containers look like colourful building blocks in this photograph, playing with a sense of scale and inviting the viewer to take a closer look.
Mind The Gap 8
This painting, which has a strong typographic focus, celebrates the iconic signage of the Underground, recalling classic, recognisable features of the London transport system.
Chemical Plant by Gina Soden
This photograph captures the impressive space of an abandoned chemical plant, showing pinpoint details of the building’s past life. The industrial structures contrasted with light-filled windows creates a dynamic stage which draws the viewer in.
