Venezuelan-born Tiqui Atencio Demirdjian purchased her first artworks at the age of 18—a Valerio Adami she loved for its strong colors and composition, and a painting by Emilio Boggio. At her wedding a year earlier, Demirdjian’s father presented her with a painting by the French artist Bernard Buffet, inspiring her lifelong passion for art collecting. Demirdjian has served as a member of the Mustique Company’s board of directors and the acquisition committees for the Guggenheim Museum and Tate Modern.
