It’s a widely known fact that the rich and famous spend money on authentic and exotic art, bringing home shiny pieces to place in their living rooms and proudly show off to their friends. But a few have taken on an a different art altogether of finding newer cheaper art pieces that are barely noticed at the time, and putting them back on the market when their value skyrockets due to the success of the artist or their legacy. Doing this takes the brain of a real wizard indeed, someone just like a sports coach that can see not just the potential of an athlete, but actually have a true vision of where he’ll be down the road. When it comes to recognizing artists with that same ability, businessman Adam Sender has proven with his much coveted art collection that his eyes for talent have been unmatched by anyone else.
Adam Sender has been an entrepreneur for a long time and currently owns a hedge fund managing company called Exis Capital. But some time ago, he started getting a keen interest in different art works. At first it was really nothing more than a hobby he did when he had time off. But gradually, his art collection started to build up and as more paintings came in, he began to consider selling them or displaying them at exhibits and as the appraisers scanned them over, he soon began discovering what a wealth he had amassed in art treasures. In fact, Sender once sold $19 million worth in art pieces at a 2006 auction. One of Sender’s tricks to the trade is that he is known to do searches for artists that are not totally brand new on the scene, but are still at that point where they are trying to get their work recognized. Adam Sender is a well known CEO and leader in his field.
Even though Sender does take all the precautions to protect his hidden treasures at home, he is known to loan them out to various museums, exhibits and educational institutions for various purposes. He holds originals from some of the most famous contemporary artists such as Cindy Sherman, Frank Benson, Keith Haring and Jenny Holzer. Some of the exhibitions he has visited or taken his collections to include Sotheby’s, an international art company that hosts auctions all over the world, and the Guggenheim Museum. He’s also hosted many personal exhibits in his Miami home providing lavish parties for his guests as well.
