Sensual, clever, rock´́n roll – are all words that have been used to describe Copenhagen based Tine Helleshøj́s bold, individualistic style. At the age of 20, after attending several art schools, her career was jumpstarted by winnig the first price at a curated exhibition, shown on Danish National television in 1998. Since then she has been working as a professional artist shown in several galleries throughout Denmark as well as art fairs across the world. Working on canvas in mixed mediums such as gouache, spray paint, stencils and oilpainted characters, her most well known image is the sexy Pin-up.
But for years she has been defragmenting the iconic retro image, by working with her own photographs or dividing the image in cubistic shapes, and have been playing her way through other expressions like collages, sculptures, woodwork and papercuts. Always with a strong esthetic, but also often with a sarcastic comment about the world surrounding us. Her ”joie de vivre” approach to art has earned her a large following since her debut in 1998, appealing to a wide audience of art enthusiasts and casual admirers alike.
