Looking for a new artwork to hang on your wall? A statement piece for your living room, perhaps, or a contemporary kitchen installation to wow your dinner party guests, but don’t have the time to traipse around galleries trying to find the perfect piece?

Then look no further than Old Street-based Rise Art. The online gallery allows users to brows the expertly hand-curated selection of artworks from artists all over the world, and some closer to home. For those who like to try before they buy, Rise Art allows you to buy or rent from thousands of works, and hang your chosen artwork in your home before you commit to buy.

Artists to rent at a fraction of the price of sale include big names such as Tracey Emin to emerging artists and locals, such as the Hampstead School of Art-trained Anna Toppin. With first time buyers currently the motor behind the market, and blowing their budgets in the process, Rise Art offers affordable art for millennial buyers looking to spruce up their new homes without breaking the bank, and all online.

Picture your kitchen lit up by the ‘Electric Tree Hampstead Heath’ by Helen Brough, who produces artwork depicting Primrose Hill, Hampstead and other Camden areas, for £180. Perhaps your bathroom needs a monochromatic touch with Marianne Nix Art’s ‘Early Morning Walk, Hampstead Heath’ for £145.

With fans including upscale hotel site Mr and Mrs Smith, whose curated hotel collection includes Marylebone boutique hotels the Chiltern Firehouse, the Zetter Townhouse and the Dorset Square Hotel, Rise Art has carved a name for itself in making art accessible and affordable.
