World Oceans Day
Wednesday 8th June was World Oceans Day, and here at Rise Art we were inspired to pick out a series of seascapes to transport us straight to the coast. As we sat in the office, these were the artworks that got us through the day. Check out the collection of original paintings, limited edition prints and photographs and we'll see you at the beach!
Having two birthdays a year is just another perk of being the Queen of England... Don't pretend you're not envious! Fear not though, it's the perfect excuse to indulge in tea and cake and celebrate all things British and let's pray for some sun!
With that in mind, here is one of our newest additions at Rise Art, Susan Elliott. She finds discarded vintage ceramics and memorabilia, painstakingly creating statement murals like this one that's dedicated to our very own Queen of Bling!

Exploring the Slade School of Fine Art MFA Show

Urban Soul - A Solo Show by Pedro Correa
Pedro Correa's solo show opened on Wednesday evening at the French Art Gallery in London. Our Artist Champion attended the opening and confirmed that his contemplative cityscapes are even more emotive in the flesh. The exhibit is on for a month so go and check it out if you can, but don't worry if not because we'll be running an editorial on the artist very soon...!
Art by Derrick Santini - A Solo Show of Lenticulars
A selection of works from established photographer Derrick Santini are on exhibit at the Salmontini restaurant in the heart of Belgravia for a month. We love it when great art and great food can be enjoyed all at once... Head over and fall in love with his mesmerising moving lenticulars!
New tHis Week
Helen Brough is one of Rise Art's newest additions! Her rich, colourful artworks are vibrant and intriguing. Applying oil paint onto aluminium, she captures hazy, abstracted scenes inspired by the cityscapes and landscapes of London. There's nothing quite like one of Helen's artworks - it would be the talking point of the house!
