When he’s not making music or rehearsing his killer dance moves, you can probably find Chris Brown doing something “artsy.” Showing off his artistic skills, Chris was spotted in West Hollywood, CA spray-painting a piece of art-work on a canvas Tuesday afternoon (Jan 25).

“I fell in love with art around the age of six. I always took pride in kind of winning the coloring contests in school,” Chris recently shared in one of his Mechanical Dummy webisodes. “Art was my only outlet. Aside from music, art is the thing that I like to use as an escape. I appreciate other artists who have that talent and that eye for detail and eye for their own imagination. Art is a part of my life and it influences me completely.”

Later that evening, the R&B/Pop singer and some friends hung out at popular Los Angeles shopping destination “The Grove” and were seen making stops at Barnes & Noble and The Cheesecake Factory.
