Showing every day he is a man of many talents, President Trump can add producing artwork to his list of skills.
A sketch of the New York skyline drawn by President Trump is being auctioned off on Nate D. Sanders Auctions and is expected to garner thousands of dollars. Put up for sale Thursday, the artwork has a starting price of $9,000.
Trump penned the piece to produce a minimalistic stilt of New York City’s skyscrapers alongside a ribbon like river for a 2005 charity initiative by logistics company Pitney Bowes. Other celebrities such as former New York Jets’ Quarterback Chad Pennington contributed artwork to the literacy campaign.
Trump returned to his roots for inspiration for the piece, depicting Trump Tower dwarfing other mid town skyscrapers as the centerpiece of the drawing. The fact Trump Tower doesn’t dwarf the other buildings in real life speaks to the creative expression Trump invokes with his work. The river’s composition as two opposing, solitary lines leaves the onlooker something to be desired, a common effect of solid minimalism.
Giving the 11.5-by-9-inch his signature in elegant gold at the bottom, Trump undoubtedly considers his piece to be the best. And he may gain some monetary affirmation, as his creation will most likely fetch well over $10,000. The steep price is likely influenced by the fact he is now president.
While Trump might not be the next Van Gogh or Picasso, one creative arts field he is talented at is writing. His worldwide best selling book, “The Art of the Deal,” is considered to be a staple in business world tactics.
