Tine Helleshøj (DK)

Sensual, cocky and rock’n’roll - words that have been used to describe the colourful and special style od Tine Helleshøj. Her career jumpstarted in 1998, when she at the age of 20 participated in the exhibition Galleri 12 by Danish national TV, won the viewer´s award and was interviewed on TV. Tine has since worked professionally as a painter and has exhibited at various national and international galleries. Furthermore, she has several public and private decorations on her CV.

Tine Helleshøjs works are mixed media on canvas, like oil. acrylic, spray, stencils and usually her characters are in front, painted in oil. Her classic, nostalgic, sexy pinups have over time been replaced by her own photographs, fragments of the human being and a more narrative story - still with colourful and detailed backgrounds, that together form happy and mesmerizing works. Often with a humorous or sarcastic view on life.

Her ‘Joire de vivre’ approach to art has given her a loyal and large audience, as her art appeals to a variety of people.
