The incident has not only made headlines but also inspired an art piece featuring his mugshot.

The artwork, created by artist Godfrey Lohman and titled “Tuesday Night Out Featuring Justin Timberlake,” has garnered significant interest, according to the gallery, with visitors lining up to view and photograph the piece that is available in several colors including pink, green, and blue.

Gallery owner Romany Kramoris expressed her excitement over the artwork, saying, “My reaction was, ‘Oh my God! That’s great! It’s just great!’” she told Page Six. Kramoris, fondly known as the “Queen of Sag Harbor” after operating her gallery for 44 years, added that the piece has become the gallery’s “most contemporary” work.

The gallery has sold “two or three” of the works at $520 each so far, and, “a lot of people are coming back,” Kramoris said.

Despite his arrest, Timberlake’s Forget Tomorrow World Tour is set to continue as scheduled, with upcoming shows in Chicago and New York City before embarking on an overseas leg in late July.

During his June 29 performance in Boston, the singer seemed to address his arrest with a touch of humor, asking the crowd, “So, uh, is there anyone here tonight that is driving?” The comment drew a mixture of gasps and laughter from the audience, which he quickly followed up with, “No, I’m just kidding,” before resuming his performance.

The singer had previously addressed the incident during a Chicago concert on June 21, telling the crowd, “It’s been a tough week. I know I’m hard to love sometimes, but you keep loving me right back. We’ve been together through ups and downs, lefts and rights … but you’re here, and I’m here, and nothing can change this moment right now.”

Timberlake’s lawyer, Edward Burke Jr., has vowed to “vigorously” defend the singer against the allegations, stating, “He will have a lot to say at the appropriate time.”

Timberlake’s next court hearing is scheduled for July 26, coinciding with his performance at Tauron Arena Krakow in Poland.
