People will try to get famous using your name when you’re famous enough. Justin Bieber has a line in one of his songs that reads, “All the clubs you get in using my name.” That’s exactly what an art gallery tried to do this week. According to reports though, Bieber is not getting into painting any time soon. If you got an invite to the opening of an art gallery that claimed to feature works of Justin Bieber, we hate to say it, but … it’s probably fake!
The Art Gallery In Question
There was a press released that reached a couple of popular media outlets out there. Inviting the press to “Paintings from Space,” an exhibition that was set to be put together by Harry Gablowsian, the owner of the new Gablowsian Gallery. The main draw to the alleged art exhibition was meant to be paintings by Justin Bieber. The press release for the show even reads,
“It is our distinct pleasure to launch Gablowsian Gallery NYC with the first solo show of paintings by Justin Bieber,”
Probably Just A Joke
Page Six claimed that they actually contacted the alleged company behind the art exhibit. Whoever they happened to be in contact with was keen to continue the bit. With a straight face, they were told that Bieber was not going to be present at the opening date of his own collection. However, he would be arriving at some point at the beginning of November. They just didn’t want people to know exactly when so as to not incite a mob to descend on the private event.
All A Lie
Reps for Justin Bieber were reached and flat out denied the existence of any type of Justin Bieber painted artworks. Although, he could take some of the ideas that are pitched in this fake show. If he ever did want to test that side of his creativity. The “art gallery” had this to say about the way that the artworks were potentially made,
“Made with acrylics, spray paint and markers, the works embody a natural sense of freedom and abandonment. Even though they are stream of conscious works, they hold tight to a formal training and art historical framework.”
To be fair there’s an official website for the gallery, and it does claim Justin is a part of it. Maybe Bieber’s reps were not made aware of the event. It wouldn’t be the weirdest thing Bieber has ever done!
Justin Bieber Is Probably Not Looking To Appear At Any “Galas” Any Time Soon
Even if it was true that Justin Bieber had put together a couple of paintings he’s potentially staying away from Galas. At least for the time being. His wife Hailey Baldwin and himself were hit with Selena chats as they walked the red carpet at the Met Gala. Proving once again that even if celebrities get over their ex, some fans just can’t move on. What was meant to be a great outing for the couple, turned out to be pretty awkward.
Maybe that’s enough to keep Bieber away from the art gallery featuring paintings that he potentially never painted!
