From con artist to... actual artist?
As socialite scammer Anna Delvey's comeback tour continues, publicity offers for the recently-freed cult icon seem to be rolling in. One of them, according to reports, includes a solo exhibition of her jailhouse doodles.
Page Six says that artist and curator Alfredo Martinez has fallen in love with the stylish sketches Anna had posted to her website and Instagram while she was still behind bars. The tongue-in-cheek drawings nod to her designer tastes and seem to depict a more glamorous interpretation of her time spent in jail.
Martinez, who himself earned a scammer reputation back when he was imprisoned for forging Basquiat paintings, is apparently trying to reach her to organize an exhibition of her work.
Of course, it wouldn't be the first time Anna dabbled in the art world. Those who followed her saga may remember that she attempted to snag the historic piece of real estate which now houses Fotografiska for her own Anna Delvey Foundation, a private social club slash "dynamic visual-arts center." Her vision for the space included pop-up shops curated by Daniel Arsham, and installations by Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, and Tracey Emin.
Perhaps her artistic ambitions will be achieved after all!
