‘Free Anna Delvey’ Art Exhibit Raises Funds For Fraudster Anna Sorokin

A art show in New You are able to City is showcasing work attracted by and inspired by Anna Sorokin, the fake heiress whose story has lately been portrayed in Netflix’s “Inventing Anna.” 

The show, titled “Free Anna Delvey” — referencing Sorokin’s preferred name and also the one she used while pretending to be a German heiress  — features sketches and art by 33 different artists who’ve been inspired by Sorokin’s story, the New You are able to Occasions reports. The show also supposedly includes five of Sorokin’s own 22×30 inch pencil and acrylic sketches. However, because the New You are able to Occasions highlights, the sketches were really reproduced on large-print watercolor paper by Alfredo Martinez, the show’s co-curator.

Martinez themself isn’t any stranger to fraud charges. He really offered time in jail in early 2000s for mail and wire fraud for forging Jean-Michel Basquiat works of art.

“If she’s gonna get somebody to copy her artwork, it’s good she had a Basquiat forger to get it done,” Martinez told Insider. The show’s other co-curator, Julia Morrison, is renowned for minting NFTs of messages she claims actor Armie Hammer, who had been charged with rape this past year, sent her. (Hammer has denied the rape allegations.)

Sorokin’s reproduced sketches cost $10,000 a bit. About 25% from the show’s proceeds are apparently going towards Sorokin’s legal defense.

The 31-year-old Russian-born German was charged in 2019 of eight charges, including grand larceny and thievery after masquerading being an heiress between 2013 and 2017.

Sorokin solicited $275,000 from buddies, banks and companies for which she’s always maintained which was the best strategic business plan on her project, the Anna Delvey Foundation. Her lawyer has mentioned that they was just attempting to “fake it til she managed to get” within the difficult career waters of recent You are able to City.

She was launched from prison last Feb but was arrested six days later by ICE for overstaying her visa. She, as well as other detainees, filed a category-action suit against ICE earlier this year for allegedly neglecting to safeguard her from COVID-19.

Sorokin now faces deportation / removal to Germany for overstaying her visa.
