In a report by The Real Deal, in his spare time, Becker likes to collect different ancient currencies from different countries within Africa such as Nigeria and Cameroon. Some of these collectibles are over a millennium old. Becker likes to reproduce these ancient currencies into different sculptures. Becker uses money many different times in his art and frequently they are contorted. Becker’s office is decorated with a sculpture that is made up of crumpled cash, different gold bars that are stacked like the game Jenga and even origami animals as well as other shapes that are recognizable to many that are all made from paper money. Arthur Becker has even sold a number of these different pieces.
