ANNA Delvey dropped a surprise recording tonight during her new solo art exhibition from the ICE detention center where she’s being held.
Delvey, whose real name is Anna Sorokin, is launching the one-night-only exhibit, entitled “Allegedly,” on Thursday night at New York City’s Public Hotel.
The exhibit is featuring sketches Delvey completed while being held in the Orange County Correctional Facility in Goshen, New York.
“Hi everyone, Anna Delvey here,” she begins.
“I’m so very excited to unveil my first ever art collection titled ‘Allegedly.’ This is a collection of sketches I created while in ICE Orange County Detention.”
“I wanted to capture some of the moments over the past years, both never seen before and iconic, using the limited tools I have at my disposal,” she said.

In a statement to Page Six, Delvey said: “I wanted to capture some of the moments of the past years, both never-seen-before and iconic, using the limited tools I have at my disposal.
“Some of the pieces are straightforward, others are more abstract and will be unique in meaning and appearance to the observer.”
“I studied fashion illustration at Parsons in Paris, but haven’t sketched since and only again now in this upstate NY prison. Long story — don’t ask me why.

Who is Anna Delvey?
Anna Delvey, 31, whose real name is Anna Sorokin, is known for pretending to be a wealthy German heiress before she was convicted of fraud.
Born in Russia in 1991, she moved to Germany with her family when she was 16 years old.
She moved to New York City in 2013 and adopted the persona of a German heiress, ultimately conning Manhattan socialites, banks, and hotels out of thousands of dollars.
Sorokin was charged with grand larceny in 2018 and was found guilty on six counts in 2019.
She was sentenced to a maximum of 12 years in prison but was released in February 2021.
In March 2021, six weeks after her release, she was taken back into custody by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for overstaying her visa.
