Paul Becker, CEO of Art Money: How Art is The Key For Creative Thinking

By Ben Bradbury

Art is a divisive issue, but getting to know the artist’s story can help unlock creative thinking and break down barriers. Discover how tapping into creativity can make you a better strategist.

Paul Becker is the CEO of Art Money, a global fintech company empowering people to buy art through a win-win business model. He believes art’s ROI isn’t just the value of the piece but how it makes you think and feel, and how it can help with creative problem solving.

In this episode Paul explains why getting to know the artist, taking Steve Jobs as an example, helps to unlock the story behind the art and why that story can be a useful tool for your own creative thinking. He discusses how looking outside your own industry for inspiration and answers is all part of art’s power and how you can use it to break down barriers.
