Joe Biden's son is taking a swing at being an artist, and he wants $500,000 for one of his paintings.
Hunter Biden had his first art exhibit in Hollywood, CA, with celebrities like boxing champ Sugar Ray Leonard and singer Moby among the packed guests who were eager to see the 51-year-old's masterpieces.
The event went down at the famous Milk studios in Tinsel Town on Friday, with the president's son asking anywhere from a whopping $75,000 to a mindblowing $500,000 for one piece.
Hunter seemed in good spirits, shaking off the nerves at his big debut.
Keeping it casual in a denim button-up shirt, the First Son wore jeans and a noticeable Western-themed belt buckle. Rolling up his sleeves to show off his bracelets, Hunter schmoozed with the crowd that also consisted of Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti.
While Hunter's famous father wasn't there to offer his support, he did have his family to back him up. His wife, Melissa, and two of his daughters, newly-engaged Naomi Biden, 27, and Maisy Biden, 20, were photographed at the 200+ people event.
Hunter and the art enthusiasts failed to wear a mask, despite covid-19 still being a threat in the county.

The event was reportedly geared at the wealthy with the White House defending Hunter and his pricey paintings after some were concerned.
According to Joe's administration, the White House avoided any sort of ethical conflict by making sure neither the president nor Hunter knew the identities of who bought what at the art show.
Hunter's art debut comes at a sensitive time as his father is desperately trying to save the United States from financial turmoil.
Earlier this week, Joe slammed the Republican party for failing to raise the debt ceiling following a disastrous financial year due to the pandemic. He called their move "hypocritical, dangerous and disgraceful."
"Their obstruction and irresponsibility knows absolutely no bounds, especially after we're clawing our way out of this pandemic," the president said on Monday.
The deadline is October 18. If Congress fails to lift the debt ceiling, the US will be unable its bills.
