(RepublicanWire.org) – Hunter Biden debuted his new art exhibit at a New York City art gallery. His pieces are on sale for $85,000 each.
The exhibit, titled “Bridging the Abstract,” opened in a gallery owned by artist Georges Berges. Biden was one of several artists featured. Works of renowned artists, such as Elaine de Kooning and Helen Frankenthaler, were also on display. The first son submitted three paintings in an abstract style.
Despite skepticism from critics, Berges defended Biden’s paintings as perfect for his exhibition.
“I was thinking of this show as new and abstract artists,” Berges told the outlet at the opening of the showing. “And I saw a lot of aspects of [Biden’s] work from a historical sense, and it fit really nicely into the exhibition.”
“A lot of people are interested in his artwork,” he added. “The very serious people in the art world are taking note of his work.”
Berges said he believes that the first son has pure intentions with his art and is using it as a way to cope with his traumatic past of drug addiction and family deaths.
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) is much less charitable than Berges toward Biden’s artwork, hinting that it may be a cover for something much more sinister.
“Hunter’s art dealer, Berges, has also made it clear that he intends to be the ‘lead guy’ in China for art,” Comer wrote. “Why would anyone pay Hunter top dollar for items that are arguably worthless? He’s no Pablo Picasso. As chairman of the House Oversight Committee, I will continue to push for transparency and answers for the American people to get to the bottom of who is buying Hunter’s art.”
Along with Comer’s concern, House Judiciary Chair Jim Jordan (R-OH) questioned on Friday if Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is investigating Hunter’s shady art deals.
“Is Alvin Bragg looking into Hunter Biden’s art sales and business records in New York City?” Jordan asked on Twitter Friday. “Outrageous.”
