UK & International Shipping
We ship to the UK, USA, all EU Countries & EEC Countries, and many more. If your country is not available, please contact us and we'll do our best to deliver to your door. International orders may incur customs duties (intra EU orders excluded) which are not included in the shipping costs. Rise Art will make every attempt to minimise customs charges in accordance with international shipping regulations.
Shipping prices depend on destination, size and weight and will be added at checkout. Please contact us with any shipping queries and we'd be delighted to help.
It's Ok if you change your mind. All artwork ordered comes inclusive of our no-hassle 14 days free return policy, no questions asked (full artwork refund or exchange). Custom framed artwork is excluded due to the bespoke nature of the framing process. Please see more about our returns and cancellations policy here.
We can arrange framing for you, that means your artwork will arrive ready to hang and can go straight on the wall.
We offer black, white or walnut coloured wood-grain finish as default frames. Please see examples in our FAQs. If you would like a bespoke frame, including, but not limited to, a tray frame and gilded frame, find out more here.
An installation service can be book upon request. After purchase, our customer service team will be in contact with you via email (usually the same day as purchase) and this service can be requested then.
Originally from Derbyshire, England, Dave Smith studied painting at Derby College of Art (now University of Derby) and Hornsey College of Art (now middlesex University). After some part-time teaching in art schools, he formed the art collective Electric Colour Company with three other artists, working out of a studio in Shoreditch, London.
In 1973, he left England for the Bahamas where he embarked on a prolific period of painting with photo-realist and neo-pop overtones, which he showed in a… number of solo and group shows in Nassau and Miami, Florida, where he was represented by Gallery of 24. He remained in the Bahamas for 17 years and was one of 11 principal artists featured in 'Artists of the Bahamas', a 2008 documentary feature film about the key artists who contributed to the initial art movement in the Bahamas. He left the Bahamas in 1990, moving to Los Angeles, where he continues to live and work.
Although much of his work comments on contemporary American society, he often draws on his Caribbean experience. in recent years he has been in group shows in Nassau, Bahamas; Waterloo, Iowa; Tallahassee, Florida; New Orleans, Louisiana; Vienna, Austria and Leipzig, Germany. His most recent solo show was at the D'Aguilar Art Foundation in Nassau in 2016 and has more recently participated in two separate group shows in the Los Angeles area, focusing on British artists working in Southern California.
