First son Hunter Biden has found a new lucrative side hustle: painting.
According to artnet.com, Hunter, who has no formal training, said he’s entering the art business as a full-time painter, with plans to open two upcoming exhibitions in Los Angeles and New York.
The report comes after past texts reveal President Biden’s son used racist language against Asians and the use of the n-word, the New York Post reports.
Hunter’s artwork has already caught the eye of art dealer, Georges Berges, who has priced the first son’s pieces between $75,000 and $500,0000.
“I don’t paint from emotion or feeling, which I think are both very ephemeral,” Biden told artnet.com. “For me, painting is much more about kind of trying to bring forth what is, I think, the universal truth.”
“The universal truth is that everything is connected and that there’s something that goes far beyond what is our five senses and that connects us all,” he added.
The younger Biden’s modern artwork has collected widespread praise from art experts.
“I’ve been in the art business since 1956,’’ Alex Acevedo, who owns the Alexander Gallery in Midtown Manhattan, told The New York Post. “I’m not impressed with modern art at all. But I was floored by that guy.’’
“It has that authenticity that I like to 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.”
When asked what the president, his father, thought of his art, Hunter responded: “My dad loves everything that I do and so I’ll leave it at that.”
