Chris Brown launches first art show

Chris Brown has taken time away from the recording studio to open an exhibition of his artwork in Los Angeles.

The Kiss Kiss hitmaker showed off his graffiti-inspired paintings and sketches at the launch of his first art show at the Corey Helford Gallery on Wednesday (02May12).


The proud star posted pictures of his work on Twitter.com, writing, "My first art show!"


It was a big day for Brown - he also debuted Dum English, his line of limited edition collectable toys and figures, at the Toy Art Gallery in L.A.
