CULTURED: How did you begin to build your own collection?
This Miami Collector Was Once Outbid by Martin Margulies. He Got the Piece Anyway.
Through a friendship with mega collector Ella Fontanals-Cisneros and a background in real estate, Daniel de la Vega made his first foray into collecting, and hasn’t looked back. In the years since, he became a member of The National Young Arts Foundation, board of trustees member at PAMM, and is on the Guggenheim Photo Committee. Now, the president of ONE Sotheby’s International Realty has a collection of over 100 pieces—all of which reflect where he’s been and where he’s going. Here, de la Vega tells CULTURED where his collection started and why its pieces are so personal to him.
