Tatiana Peralta’s expertise in art comes from working at Sotheby’s México, one of the world’s largest brokers of fine and decorative art. Tatiana says it’s been a privilege to be part of Mexico’s transformation into the important art space it is today.

She is the intermediary between Mexican clients who want to sell their pieces and the headquarters in Britain, New York, and Paris, among others. Her work and the constant communication with experts have allowed her to understand the art world. From intense research, to meeting people who love, breathe and live art, Tatiana is building incredible skills in order to get a master understanding of the fine arts.

“The day-to-day work at Sotheby’s has been the best school,” she said. “I have access to all kinds of art pieces. This kind of training has helped me develop a critical eye, which is the most valuable skill I’ve acquired professionally speaking.”

After working at Museo Soumaya, a well-known private museum in Mexico City, Tatiana knew that it didn’t matter where she ended up; art had to be part of her life. Understanding the story, the meaning and the value of each individual piece is her passion. “Every person who owns an art piece has a story to tell,” she said. “I get to know that story every time the piece changes owners. I see how differently both sides appreciate the same art piece and it can get very emotional.”

Tatiana admires the German artists Bernd and Hilla Becker, the photographer Cindy Sherman, and the Mexican performance artist Teresa Margolles but her list is never-ending. Young British artists, the simplicity of minimalism and the feminist arts inspire her. Her style is definitely eclectic but the fun and stylish part of her look is the nationalist twist she adds to every outfit.

She loves delicate clutches handmade by Oaxacan artisans, and oversized bags woven in Chiapas. The unique details she adds to her spontaneous but sophisticated and fresh look makes her the perfect hunt for street style geeks. She believes a trendsetter is someone who’s true to her style, her personality and her surroundings. The next item she wants to add to her wardrobe is a tuxedo.

The launching of the new Jumex Museum in Mexico City, one of the largest private contemporary art collections in Latin America, is the gossip that intrigued her the most these past days. She says this project could become an essential and powerful bridge between Mexican contemporary artists and the world.

Tatiana’s appreciation and understanding of art has in many ways helped brand Mexican artists. The Fancy Archive supports her advice and encourages people to be curious and make space in your agendas to admire the work of Mexican talents, as they are in everyone’s radar and their pieces will soon be someone else’s.
