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.

"Illusion Waves" paintings by Biserka Petrovic


Inspired by human existence and its meaning, Biserka’s paintings over the past decade have emphasized the emotions of the characters with strong contrasts. Recently, shadows have started to develop their own life in her paintings. Physical abstracted shadows, Jungian shadows, shadow play, and shadow work symbolize everything that a human being carries inside, a conglomerate of invisible threads as unique as a fingerprint. The "Illusion Waves" paintings feature serene abstracted rolling hills in the background, strongly contrasted with the dynamism of the human figure in the foreground. They subtly invite viewers to reflect on themes of eternity, resilience, limitless potential, and the boundless nature of human experience.
