About Me


Welcome to the vibrant world of Ivana Bukovac, where each color tells a story and emotions speak louder than words.

Our platform provides carefully curated access to artworks selected by art experts, guaranteeing a selection of the highest quality.

Our Mission and Actions

At THE ART HUB, our mission is initially focused on addressing a profound imbalance within the art world, specifically catering to women artists. In the current landscape, a mere 5% to 15% of artworks traded at auctions are created by women, starkly contrasted by the overwhelming 85% to 95% of works by male artists. This disparity is not only confined to auctions but is also prevalent in exhibitions, where male-created art significantly overshadows that of their female counterparts.

By concentrating our efforts on female artists, THE ART HUB aims to counteract this imbalance and champion women within the art community. This initiative is designed to amplify the visibility of women artists, making their creations more accessible to a wider audience, and ultimately striving for a more balanced representation of genders within art auctions and exhibitions. By prioritizing women in art, our platform boldly advocates for equality and diversity within the art sector, signaling a commitment to reshaping and enriching the cultural landscape.

Artist Statement


From a young age, my artistic world was shaped by my grandmother, who introduced me to the beauty of artistic expression. My artwork is deeply introspective, blending drawing and painting techniques in acrylic and oil. During my creative process, which is continuously evolving, the initial idea often transforms, reflecting a reality woven from personal memories and diverse elements. This combination crafts a narrative that invites viewers into a dialogue with surreal undertones, exploring the complexities of an inner world made up of memories, fears, imagination, and dreams.


While my work may appear figurative at first glance, it is a profound meditation on identity. My female figures, characterized by their often-invented faces and direct gazes, embody my desire to express the intricacies of our lived experiences, which unfold through a temporal journey marked by memories and emotions.
