Update 6/16: Fox Business reported on a new development about Hunter Biden‘s new career. George Bergès, the Soho art dealer who represents Hunter has confirmed that “as with every artist, sales are always confidential to protect the privacy of the collector.”
Townsend Group which represents Bergès told Fox Business that “Pricing fine art in his experiences as a Gallerist is based on the demand of the work as well and the intrinsic value of it. His feeling is that within each piece – as with every artist, sales are always confidential to protect the privacy of the collector, this is standard practice for transactions in galleries as well as auction houses.”
Hunter Biden the only living son of President Joe Biden, is now a full time artist, according to Artnet. His paintings will be privately shown by Georges Bergès Gallery in Los Angeles this fall, followed by an exhibition in New York. According to his dealer, prices range from $75,000 for works on paper to $500,000 for large-scale paintings.
According to Artnet:
He typically paints on a tabletop, horizontally, and doesn’t “fully envision what it will become,” he said. “At least, it never turns out to be what I started off in my mind’s eye at the outset.”
Working on canvas, metal, and Japanese Yupo paper, Biden’s artworks are often layered, with elements of photography, painting, collage, and poetry. Some are geometric abstractions, filled with patterns and somewhat hallucinogenic. Others depict trees, leaves, and body parts like outstretched arms.
“I don’t paint from emotion or feeling, which I think are both very ephemeral,” Biden said. “For me, painting is much more about kind of trying to bring forth what is, I think, the universal truth.”
