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 and Goals

As an artist, my aim is to bring joy to people through my paintings. I seek to create an atmosphere that highlights the contrast between beauty and transience.


I painted a photo model as an astronaut because women often hesitate to apply for astronaut roles. However, I believe there are many incredible, strong women who are living their dreams. This is how I view my works, like the astronaut painting, as motivation that one can achieve and be anything they aspire to.


I stand for strong women who remain true to themselves and advocate for peace, equality, and justice. "There is bliss to find happiness in art." - Astrid Stöfhas
