CEO of the new start-up Art Money, Paul Becker, claims he is not from the art world. ‘I just try to fake it by wearing black,’ he said at the company’s launch today.

But far from faking it, Becker has launched a scheme that has set the visual art world buzzing with the promise of new money. Becker is the​ cultural entrepreneur behind 10 Group, which has partnered with City of Sydney to deliver an interest-free loan scheme to support the growth of art collecting in Australia.
