According to a report from PageSix, the embattled son of Joe Biden, Hunter Biden is planning his first solo art show at the Georges Bergès Gallery in upscale Manhattan, NY.
This comes while Hunter is under federal investigation over his tax dealings.
Sources told PageSix “Hunter is inking a deal as an artist to be represented by New York’s Georges Bergès Gallery. An announcement and exhibition of his work is being planned for next year.”
The 50 year old has no formal art trading and worked as a lobbyist, venture capitalist and investor for a living but credited painting for “literally keeping me sane” in a NY Times interview.
He added “for years I wouldn’t call myself an artist. Now I feel comfortable saying it.”
Biden told the NY Times that painting “puts my energy toward something positive” and “it keeps me away from people and places where I shouldn’t be.”
“The one thing I have left is my art. It’s the one thing they can’t take away from me or conflate with anything else,” he added.
