His father is headed to the White House late next month, while the Justice Department investigates his foreign business deadlines, and Hunter Biden is seeking to capitalize on a burgeoning art career, Page Six reported.
Hunter Biden, 50, is close to a deal with New York's Georges Bergès Gallery, with a solo show coming sometime next year, per the report.
Notably, the controversial son of the president-elect, used art as an escape from getting himself into trouble during his father's presidential campaign.
"It keeps me away from people and places where I shouldn't be," Hunter Biden told The New York Times in February.
Hunter Biden has battled addiction, telling the Times his painting "is literally keeping me sane."
"For years I wouldn't call myself an artist; now, I feel comfortable saying it," he told the Times, adding painting "puts my energy toward something positive."
Hunter revealed last week the Justice Department is investigating his taxes while he held a lucrative seat on the board of the Ukraine energy company Burisma.
