HUNTER Biden has reportedly planned his first solo art show as Joe Biden said he is "confident" his son did nothing wrong in his tax probe.
An announcement and exhibition of the president-elect's son's work is penned for next year, sources told Page Six.
According to the outlet, Hunter has been planning a deal as an artist to be represented by New York's Georges Bergès Gallery.
Earlier this year, Hunter expressed how his new hobby has helped battle addiction.
He told the New York Times in February that painting is "literally keeping me sane."
"For years I wouldn't call myself an artist. Now I feel comfortable saying it," he said.
Hunter creates blown ink abstractions on paper from a studio in a pool house in the Hollywood Hills.
"I want to protect this place," he told the Times.
"The one thing I have left is my art. It's the one thing they can't take away from me or conflate with anything else."
He describes painting as putting "my energy toward something positive," explaining that it "keeps me away from people and places where I shouldn't be."
Hunter has not yet confirmed the announcement of any art shows or collaborations with the gallery.
The news comes just weeks after Hunter revealed that his "tax affairs" were being investigated.
Feds in Delaware and Washington DC were looking into money laundering claims and Hunter's foreign dealings, a source told Politico.
And the New York Post reports that the probe involves a laptop allegedly owned by Hunter which appears to contain documents detailing his dealings in China and Ukraine.
The FBI is also looking into transactions with foreigners who may have posed counterintelligence concerns, CNN reports.
This comes a year after federal agents seized a laptop from a Delaware computer repair shop whose owner claims it was left there by Hunter.
However, when quizzed by reporters on Wednesday, Joe said that he believes his son has done nothing wrong.
"I'm confident," Joe responded in Wilmington, Delaware, at the end of an event welcoming Pete Buttigieg to the administration.
At the time the probe was announced, the Biden-Harris transition team said that Joe was "deeply proud of his son."
It added that Hunter had "fought through difficult challenges, including the vicious personal attacks of recent months, only to emerge stronger."
The last part of this statement would appear to be a reference to the "Ukraine, crack, and sex" allegations previously published by the New York Post and reports about his business dealings in China.
Joe Biden denies any involvement in his son's business dealings.
