Artist Biography


Duhita Thimaiah hails from Kodagu (Coorg), India, and was born in 1969 in Bangalore. She was enrolled in a Roman Catholic boarding school in Bangalore from the age of five. Her vacations were spent with her parents on the tea plantations amidst the beautiful, atmospheric, and richly biodiverse hills of the Western Ghats in Southern India, which instilled in her a deep love of nature. As a child, she loved drawing but ultimately decided to pursue a career in design. She attended the National Institute of Fashion Technology in New Delhi, which was set up in collaboration with the Fashion Institute of Technology, New York, graduating in 1991. After spending a few years in the fashion industry and launching a brand of children's wear stores in India, she moved with her family to Dubai, Cairo, and London. During her seven years in Cairo, she continued to freelance on design projects and engaged local communities of women to create a line of elegantly handcrafted home linens, drawn by her love for tradition and fine craftsmanship.


A midlife crisis became the catalyst that propelled her to reconnect with the creative spark she had as a child. With her daughters studying and working in Europe and the US, she realized a lifelong dream of studying art. She completed a three-year program at the Florence Academy of Art, Italy, graduating in June 2018. There, she studied classical, realist methods of the 19th century, drawing inspiration from the great masters of the past and learning the fundamentals of a visual language that has developed over centuries.

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


I am inherently drawn to the art of earlier eras—its beauty, incredible skill, and its capacity to stir emotion and awe. Such art possesses an integrity that transcends the need for words. My approach to painting is skill-based, striving for a timeless appeal. Realism, for me, is about painting from life, capturing the natural experience in all its beauty and complexity. It involves observing the sensitivity of light and its interaction with forms. By painting the natural world and feeling the sublime within it, I am opened up to a higher state of consciousness. Nature is subtle, alive, and enchanting; its vibrance is palpable and inspires me through felt experience.


Moving forward, my intent is to express themes that resonate with me on a deeper level. I believe that protecting and restoring nature is not only our inheritance but also our civilizational duty. Observing the state of the planet compels us to question the predominantly male narrative that has guided our past actions. It is time for women to step forward, to lead, guide, and help manifest a new reality. We must be involved in formulating new ecological consciousness and policies. A profound connection with nature is crucial to human well-being; we can no longer be part of a system that profits from the destruction of our natural world.
