Homepolish has always been about bringing accessible interior design to the masses, and similarly, Uprise Art strives to bring incredible artwork to all.
Founded in 2011 (aka one year before the founding of Homepolish), Uprise Art was built upon the goal of helping people discover original contemporary artwork by emerging artists for the spaces where they live and work. Since Homepolish and Uprise Art were united by a similar goal (we focus on accessible interior design for the masses, and they focus on making artwork accessible), we were quickly professional BFFs. Homepolish designers have often sourced artwork and accessories from their curated collection, and we even designed the Brooklyn home of the founder Tze Chun (pictured above).
The collaboration continues as we bring a sampling of their work to our very own H Marketplace. As Tze says, “All the works Uprise Art has curated for H Marketplace are one-of-a-kind artist originals and limited-edition photographs and prints (edition sizes less than 20).” Below, learn about some of the artists featured on the site.

Working primarily in the mediums of gouache, ink, and paper, this artist creates work that captures the spirit of imperfection, resulting in abstracts both fluid and organic. Edgy angles and softer circles intersect to create dynamic pieces that make us drop whatever we’re doing to stare in wonderment.
Influenced by architecture, functionality, and minimalism, artist Andrew Mueller blends clean lines, geometric fragments, and textural experiences to form distinct inlaid ceramics. From the looks of them, one would almost think that they were found on some ancient archaeological dig. Who knew that pottery could be so intricate and beautiful?
Vast imagination to say the very least. In his “Death Valley” series, artist Jordan Sullivan transforms the arid desert into a dreamscape wasteland through surreal light and merging, melting color spectrums. It’s like reality fades into dream.
We’re seeing spots! Made from stoneware, ceramicist Pilar Wiley’s sculptural pieces rise with fluid, textured shape. The LA-based artist recalls the sculptural qualities of plants, minerals, and rock formations to create her distinctive work. It’s nearly reminiscent of the famed Yayoi Kusama… just without the mega pricetag.
Translated, this series of works means “celestial body.” Inspired by shared networks between people and objects, Parisian artist Alma Charry’s whimsical work forms constellations of organic, stellar symbols and shapes. It’s almost as if we stumbled upon them in some cavernous ruin.
