We would like to introduce you to Faudhya Dai, Auctionata expert in Antique Furniture, Decorative Arts & Sculpture, Icons, Religious Art as well as Haute Epoque.

Faudhya Dai has completed two degrees in the area of Art History, European cultural heritage and economy, and in the area of strategy and business intelligence, which she completed at the University of Sorbonne and the University Paris - Dauphine.

After Faudhya Dai successfully worked in a management consultancy, she decided she would rather dedicate herself entirely to her passion. She has been working as an antique dealer for over ten years now. Faudhya Dai specializes in the areas of Old Masters from the 16th to 19th Century, and religious art; primarily European religious sculptures from the Baroque period to the 19th Century, and Russian icons.

Her passion for antiques, and continual research of the global art market have helped Faudhya Dai to develop the flair to find the most coveted art objects at affordable prices. This quality is particularly important and of great convenience when working with collectors, antique dealers and regional museums all over the world.

Faudhya Dai's philosophy is based on the opinion that art should not be described as a "good for the elite ". In her opinion, it is worthwhile and safe to invest in art, however, it is not a simple and quick investment.

Her longstanding work experience with more than 1,000 collectors from all over the world has made her an experienced expert, which is of great importance especially in the digital era. 

Faudhya Dai lives and works in Berlin.
