Hunter Biden’s art to sell as high as $500K and the buyers will be kept ‘confidential’

President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, has taken a turn into artistry and the first paintings he’s selling are going for as high as $500,000.

The first son’s first foray into the art world has seen his pieces picked up by art dealer Georges Berges, who has priced the younger Biden’s artwork between $75,000 and $500,000 depending on the size and scope of the collage artwork.

That’s a pretty big haul when compared to other artists’ first sales. In fact, Biden’s pieces are worth more off the bat than a piece by Jean-Michel Basquiat that sold for $20,900 in 1984 – $53,770.96 in today’s dollars after adjusting for inflation.

“I don’t paint from emotion or feeling, which I think are both very ephemeral,” Biden told artnet on Monday. “For me, painting is much more about kind of trying to bring forth what is, I think, the universal truth.”

“It has that authenticity that I see in a lot of artists that I personally love, be it Freud or Bacon,” he said. “A lot of the issues that are thrown at Hunter is what makes him produce really great work.”

Even without formal training, Biden’s pieces carrying five- to six-figure price tags put his work in the same range as established artists in the field.

Hunter’s universal truth is that he has figured out another way to leverage the family name for money.

The “issues” thrown at Hunter are his insatiable appetite for crack cocaine and hookers.

This is a bribe, that’s all that this is.

Joe is going to get his cut and Hunter is going to cash out from anonymous sources.

Everybody knows it.

  1. Money laundering. There’s been a lot of speculation that’s what those huge advances for book deals are part of as well.

  2. Reminds me of all the speaking gigs the Clintons got while they had power or were going to have power. And those gigs dried up as fast as donations to the Clinton foundation once Hillery lost.

  3. I’ve seen this movie. It’s called (IIRC) “Mickey Blue Eyes”.

    The protagonist is an art auctioneer who marries the daughter of a mob boss. Then he gets roped by his new father-in-law into “auctioning” really crappy paintings by the mobster’s son for exorbitant amounts … which always seem to sell to the first bidder for exactly the asking price. Hilarity ensues (for some definition of “hilarity”).

    For people supposedly as intelligent and well-connected as the Bidens, you’d think they’d come up with a money laundering and bribery scheme that Hollywood hasn’t already made into a major motion picture. And they’d keep Hunter the hell out of it, since anything he does is (and should be, based on history) regarded with suspicion.

    Then again, the blatant “in your face” is part of the point. They’re reminding us plebeians that they can commit federal felonies in front of everyone and get away with it, but we would spend time in Club Fed if we tried.

  4. When this dbag OD’s, it’ll be interesting how much farther up this administration’s asshole will the progtard MSM will ascend. SMH
