Chris Brown launches debut street art exhibition

'Turn Up The Music' hitmaker Chris Brown has stepped away from the microphone to present his debut art show.

The R&B sensation opened an exhibition of his own art work in Los Angeles at the Corey Helford Gallery and showcased a selection of his graffiti-inspired paintings and sketches.

He was there to promote the 'Dum English' range with Ron English, who designed Brown's 'F.A.M.E.' album cover, and said of the artist:

"Hands down right now my guy is Ron English. Ron has to be the more creative, ‘out there’ artist I see. His work is so precise but at the same time so unorthodox. I think it’s incredible to be able to see him do what he does and be a fan."

English also had nothing but praise for the talented young performer and commended him on his talent:

"Chris is one of the sweetest, most talented people I’ve ever met. Working with Chris is like being a kid in a candy store. The ideas we come with are fun and colorful, young, and daring,"




Brown took to Twitter yesterday (May 2) and revealed his excitement at the project, writing:

"My toy launch with Ron English is "today" on Melrose at TAG! My first art exhibit is after! Posting that address soon!"
