Arthur Becker is a tech mogul turned real estate investor. He bought technology companies in the early 2000’s and among his tech holdings he was the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Zinio and the CEO of NaviSite, a company that provided technology and application management. He also served as the senior advisor to the Vera Wang Fashion Company. After NaviSite was sold in 2011, Becker took to the real estate industry. He is also a bit of an artist and his office is home to his art workshop and displays of his paintings and sculptures.
He was always a silent partner in his real estate dealings, but he took on 465 Washington Street in New York and made it the first development he has handled himself. He developed eight luxury condominiums with a selling price of more than $52 million. He invested in 10 Sullivan Street, also in New York. The project is a 16 story condominium building developed by Madison Equities. The developers transferred three of the condominiums to Becker in exchange for his share in the project.
Arthur Becker is also a collector. He collects ancient currencies from several African countries and often reproduces them into his art sculptures. His office is adorned with his original art sculptures of gold bars stacked like Jenga pieces and crumpled cash. Arthur Becker also creates origami pieces from paper money. His art endeavor has been successful as he has sold some of his creations. He also exhibits his work at his Sullivan Street project.
According to Curbed, he has incorporated pieces of the Magic 8 Ball, a toy he played with as a child, into his art. He would add pieces of the ball onto his paintings and origami money pieces. As a child, Becker would consult the Magic 8 Ball to find out what the future held for him. For him, the ball represents decisions and those decisions are finding its way into his art.
One of his investments as a young man was in a macadamia farm in Hawaii. Orchards with homes were built on the property and contracted with Mrs. Fields to take the nuts of his hands for her cookies. Mrs. Fields eventually bought the nut farm. To this day Becker still enjoys an occasional Mrs. Fields cookie.
