Artnet reports today that the George Bergès Gallery in Soho will mount a solo exhibition of Biden's art in the fall. According to George Bergès, Biden's art dealer, prices for a Biden original will start at $75,000 and go up to $500,000 for larger paintings.
Although he's been making art since he was a child, Biden has not had any formal training. He told Artnet his new studio is in a three-story garage on his property. Earlier this year, Biden published a memoir that drew attention for its unvarnished look at his life as a crack addict. Painting, he tells Artnet, isn't a form of therapy for him. "It's not a tool that I use to be able to, in any way, cope, it comes from a much deeper place," he said. "The thing that really fascinates me is the connection between the macro and the micro, and how these patterns repeat themselves over and over," he said.
