Hunter Biden cozy up at the New York Post while showing art at the Georges Berges Gallery

Hunter Biden was feeling smug as he settled into a Manhattan gallery at The Post on Thursday night, showing off his pricey artwork.

The scandal-stricken first son wrapped an arm around a Post reporter outside the Georges Berges Gallery in Soho and invited him to an exclusive event for friends and family ahead of Friday’s opening exhibition of his latest paintings.

“Hey buddy, what’s your name? Who are you dating?” the president’s son asked the reporter.

The reporter introduced himself as a journalist at The Post and the first son, who became a painter, gave him a friendly invitation.

“Why don’t you come down to the gallery at 6 and check it out without taking out your phone?” Biden asked as he slung his arm over the reporter’s shoulder and led him to the door.

Biden, 52, deviated when asked how much money his father, President Biden, made from his deals with China and Ukraine.

Thursday’s soft opening showcased the younger Biden’s latest work, including abstract paintings on tin depicting flowers and a live bird.

“I painted and washed. I painted it and washed it off,” Biden told a group of viewers as he described how he created the layers and stains on one work in his “Haiku” series.

Biden declined to describe his plays to the Post, instead inquiring about the reporter and shaking his hand – asking him to remember he has a family when the paper writes about the first son.

A gallery guest told The Post: “I thought the show was pretty good.”

The event ended around 8:30 p.m., but Biden stayed inside with a film crew.

His earlier art has ranged in price from $75,000 for works on paper to half a million dollars for his large paintings, his art dealer Berges previously said.

Some art critics say that without his name, Biden’s artworks would not fetch the prices they are getting.


Biden’s art career has raised concerns in the past, as ethics experts warned the sales are vulnerable to issues involving people trying to influence President Biden’s administration.

However, art critics have praised Biden’s work, although some said the pieces would not fetch the same price were it not for the name attached to them.

His turn to fine arts comes after he was marred by allegedly corrupt deals with countries like China and Ukraine, and a drug scandal.

Documents leaked from Biden’s laptop suggest his father is due a 10% cut from a deal with a state-affiliated Chinese energy company that allegedly made Joe’s brother James Biden $4.8 million in 2017 and 2018. paid dollars.

President Biden has denied ever discussing his son’s businesses and said he has never accepted any disbursements from them – despite reports that he has interacted with family associates from China, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Russia and Ukraine.
