Need a dose of Art Inspiration? Look no further!

Presenting Rise Art's top new works this August, curated especially for you...


Tessa Houghton

Tessa was spotted by the Rise Art Insiders and became a Featured Artist after she included her art for selection in our 'The Great Outdoors' online exhibition!

Her abstract seascapes immediately stood out to the Insiders for their ethereal and ambiguous atmospheric quality - the use of light and texture transports the viewer to another world.

Kotaro Machiyama

Kotaro Machiyama's colourful abstract artworks have won many awards. Kotaro works predominantly with acrylic on canvas, where he creates bold, colourful paintings that are inspired by the beauty of time and space.

Curator Adriana Marques says, "The simplicity and beauty of Machiyama's works enthrall me every time."

The artist’s works take the viewer on a gorgeous visual journey - he is definitely an artist to watch!

Joanna Charlotte

Joanna started painting with oils in 2004 and has developed a distinct and recognizable style that is widely collected. With a background in interior design and specialist decorative affects, her current practice is focused on statement pieces that will work well within larger interior schemes.

Her work is regularly exhibited across the U.K. and internationally, with paintings in private collections in New York, Singapore, Germany and India!

Bridget Davies

A Rise Art favourite, the fashion inspired artworks by Bridget Davies sell out quicky!

Curator Rebecca Gordon says, "Spontaneity, elegance, sensuality, beauty, texture... these are only some of the words that spring to mind when I look at these beautiful works. I love the element of freedom and chance within Bridget's works - those moments when she lets the medium take control. Her work is full of personality and would make the perfect gift for fashionistas. "

Peter Hawkins

Peter Hawkins uses different surfaces to paint on - from old school desk tops to doors and floorboards - and is inspired by the limitless capabilities of imagination.

Curator Rebecca Gordon says, "I am a huge fan of Peter Hawkins striking works, with their bold colour and celebration of nature. The flatly one dimensional and roughly spray painted backgrounds contrast starkly with the beautiful, meticulously painted birds which seem to 'pop' from the painting taking on a 3D affect. These dynamic works would look fantastic in many a setting."
