Chris Brown brushed off the old paint brushes to create something cool and beautiful for charity. Brown hooked up with famed graffiti artist Slick (real name Richard Wyrgatsch II) on Friday, tagging up a wall to raise funds for the Elton John AIDS Foundation and Best Buddies International.
The rapper tweeted a message to his fans saying, “Painting today with ‘Slick’. An Amazing artist. Gonna be a big collaboration for charity. Do what u love!”
Slick also tweeted, “@chrisbrown charity is a beautiful thang…… Lets do this,” and posted a photo with the singer “in the lab” on his Instagram.
But that was only the beginning of Brown’s artistic weekend. The superstar also painted a large St. Patrick’s Day-inspired mural yesterday, and sharing a photo of the finished product on Twitter. This latest journey into art went a lot smoother than the time he posted a picture in January depicting him as Jesus on the cross, flanked by the two prisoners who were crucified with Christ, saying, “Painting the way I feel today. Focus on what matters!”
