Brief Biography & Artistic Journey


Brigitte Saugstad studied ceramic art and design at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna under Prof. Matteo Thun. After completing her studies, the artist spent several months at the College of Art in New Delhi where she delved into the Indian mythology regarding the archetype of the ‘divine inner child’ - the elephant-headed god, Ganesha. Deeply moved and inspired by this experience, the artist has let him playfully dance through her hands over the years, and in all her works is woven this principle of the inner child - the embodiment of childlike joy, innocence and wisdom within.

’I form the raw material of the earth with my hands according to my ideas; nevertheless, it partly withdraws from my influence. The alchemical process of firing always adds something surprisingly different to my work'

The passion for dance, movement and speed first led Brigitte Saugstad to figure skating as a child. She won national and international junior championships before completing her young career as a figure skater. However, the fascination for powerful and harmonious movement remained alive in her.

Rather than provoke thought with her art, Brigitte Saugstad prefers to effect a state of thoughtless- awareness and release.

The Italian art critic, Georgio Pilla, described Brigitte Saugstad’s art in the following words: ’The nature of the works lies in the flowing movements, the gliding and the floating, that lend the sculptures and other objects an extraordinary impression of joy and lightness. At the same time the works radiate a strength and solidarity with the earth. It is this balance between dynamism and harmony that instantly attracts the observer and suffuses one with life. The colours and the movement she gives to her creations are of a sublime beauty’

Born in Vienna, Brigitte’s work represents a breath of fresh Spring air in the world of art today. This sensitive artist is clearly inspired by the Vienna Sezessionsstil movement of the early 1900s, in her search for fluid, sinuous lines and innovative emotional communicative pathways. The skill of her technique, subdued to a joyous and radiant ability.

Brigitte Saugstad presently lives and works as an independent artist in Vienna in Lower Austria. She regularly represents her sculptures in national and international galleries, exhibitions and art fairs in Austria, Germany, Italy, Spain, France, UK, Monaco, Dubai, Cyprus, Egypt, Iran, USA, Canada, China, and Japan, among others. Her artworks are in many private collections worldwide.

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.
