/ Karoliina Hellberg


A Guided tour in English on the 1st Sat of every month at 12 pm


KAROLIINA HELLBERG (b. 1987) is Didrichsen Art Museum’s 2019 Pro Arte artist. Paintings on paper and canvas are at the centre of Hellberg’s production. Often works completed in other techniques emerge from ideas and figures born during the painting process. Memories, secrets and personal experiences have their own visual interpretations in Hellberg’s imagery. Hellberg builds her exhibitions in an installation form. Together with space and its atmosphere, the paintings on paper and canvas as well as the glass objects create a unity.

Karoliina Hellberg graduated in 2015 from the Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki. Didrichsen Art Museum’s Pro Arte exhibition is Hellberg’s first solo museum exhibition.

The Didrichsen Pro Arte award is issued every few years to a young, promising artist. Hellberg´s award includes a stipend, an exhibition at Didrichsen Art Museum, a publication and the acquisition of a painting to the museum’s collection.
