Brief Biography & Artistic Journey


Helene Knoop (b. 1979, Norway) is one of Norway´s foremost figurative painters. She lives and works outside Oslo. Knoop paints her persons and characters with pathos, poetry, drama and sincerity-all communicated through the mastery of craft. Knoop mainly works with oil paint on canvas and produces prints such as lithography and wood cut prints.

From 2000 - 2003 she studied with Odd nerdrum-the world-renowned figurative painter. Since she left her masters studio she has continued to refine her skill, and she has developed her focus on the human figure by studying ancient sculpture in Italy. Knoop always paints from a live model, and she paints the Nordic landscape in plein air. Often combining these two disciplines she creates a kind of Nordic New Barock. Many of her solo shows has a specific topic concerning human conditions such as "Woman paints men" 2020, "Undercurrent" 206 and "The Nine Muses" 2009.

Over the years she has also painted several public portraits such as the Catholic Bishop of Oslo and the Chess Master, Magnus Carlsen.

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.

Personal Statement


A masterpiece engages with the profound, the human, and the sublime. It transcends time and speaks directly to us, and we recognize ourselves, or some of our own experiences in it. This is why we always return to the masterpiece.
