Hunter Biden has recently sold about 12 paintings to anonymous buyers during his father’s term as president.
"While the average yearly wage of an American artist is $73,013, Hunter has reportedly raked in hundreds of thousands of dollars as a novice painter," reports Breitbart.
At the same time, Hunter Biden is under investigation for tax fraud. He had better be reporting these art sales...hahaha.
"Previous reports indicated Hunter sold five paintings for $375,000 each in 2021. But according to a new estimate by a gallerist, Hunter’s has now sold about 12 paintings for less than his asking price of $500,000," the Washington Post reported.
"It is unclear how much money Hunter has made from his art, but estimates show he has earned at least five times more than the average American artist — all while being a novice," reports Breitbart.
Adam Thompson, an artist from Miami, said he believes Hunter’s artwork is "not bad” for a novice, "but it’s not $500,000 good."

Hunter’s art would probably be worth only "$4,000-$5,000" if he was not the president’s son, Thompson said. "It’s nowhere near as good as George W. Bush’s art."
Announcing “OUT OF MANY, ONE”

"The art market is known for corruption," Breitbart reports.
A Senate subcommittee report detailed in 2020 how the art market serves as a vehicle for money laundering:
A large number of art sales happen through intermediaries referred to as “art advisors” who can represent both purchasers and sellers. In a typical transaction, a purchaser may not ask who owns the piece of art they are purchasing; the seller may not ask for whom it is being purchased or the origin of the money. And in general, an art advisor would be reluctant to reveal the identity of their client for fear of being cut out of the deal and losing the business.
It's important to share the news to spread the truth. Most people won't.
