Adam Sender has established himself as the champion in the world of art collecting for his ability to choose the pieces of art that will sell incredibly well. Yet, his talent is not that cut and dry. One could say that it is not a talent at all and that he really just chooses the pieces of art that he loves most and allows societies love for him to dictate how much his art goes for, which is a lot.
He has gained quite an enormous reputation in the world of art collecting to complement his incredible achievements in the world of managing hedge funds. His talent as a hedge fund manager has ultimately given him the status that is needed for some of the world’s greatest art collectors to depend on his word and tastes as a guiding light to what is cool and popular. Ultimately, he is one of the rare, few people that have the ability to choose art that they absolutely love and put it on a platform for all to see, enjoy and purchase at heights that are not typical for pieces produced by unknown artists.
Adam Sender has always had a great desire to purchase the world’s finest art. His illustrious career as an art collector came about in 1999 when he was willing to pay $100,000 for the rights to a photograph. This photograph sold for $2 million, nearly 15 years later, yet it is his willingness to pay such a high price for a photograph introduced a new set of ethics of purchasing art to collectors and consumers alike. His success as a hedge fund manager didn’t hurt either, where he has made billions of dollars for his thousands of clients over the years. As soon as you walk into his office, you are introduced to a plethora of amazing artwork that set a tone for his investors and employees that could not be set any other way except for by art. One could say that it is his art collection being displayed at his hedge fund offices that inspire other influencers of the world to gravitate towards his particular style of art. He wants others to experience the sheer brilliance of a piece, and that tinge of emotion that prickles inside when viewing certain pieces of art.
Being a man that knows what he loves and goes after it is the very foundation of his success as an art collector. He truly enjoys the art that he purchases and people enjoy him and the mood that they are persuaded into feeling by visiting his offices or just existing in his presence.
It is extremely important to Adam to promote pieces of work that are extremely sentimental to him. His goal is to give artists that deserve a shot the greenlight to other art collectors to enjoy and indulge. One could say that being a tastemaker is his real talent, for it has served him well in the world of investing and it continues to serve him well in the world of art collecting. It is very rare for art collectors to purchase any piece of art that is not endorsed by a plethora of people in the art world as well. When everyone follows this mentality of following what others say, it leads to a league of people that are going nowhere fast. With Adam Sender, it is different because he actually has a direction and he is willing to share that direction with the art world and guide them into following his vision. The Sender collection has thrust the ideals of the contemporary art movement back into the fore of the conversation about quality enduring art forms.
