Chris Brown is turning his love for graffiti into a full-fledged art movement. The Virginia native, who named his last album after the public art form, has posted a few pictures of his own art on his Twitter page and is taking the steps to get the ball rolling on his latest endeavor. Brown also met with artists Ron English and his wife, Tarssa Yazdani, in New York last month, fueling speculation that he is interested in a possible collaboration.

English, who is working with other musicians in fusing pop with art, confirmed to Animal New York, that he was approached about meeting with Brown. “Two days later, they want me to meet Chris Brown,” he said. “They’re saying ‘He has your art. He’s been to your show. He really wants to meet you.’ I said, sure! So we met him. We had dinner. But I’m not sure what he wants to do. I’m not sure what he wanted.”

Although it is not clear just what kind of collaboration the two will come together for, Yazadani noted that the possibilities are “endless” and may include designing an album cover for the 21-year-old. Brown also has English’s art tattooed on his forearm. “Thankfully, it was very well done. Some people get my tattoos and they are god awful and embarrassing and I feel awful.”

While Brown has yet to make an official announcement himself, he isn’t the first artist to jump into the art movement. Kanye West collaborated with artist George Condo to create the sexually explicit cover art for his ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ album.

In between working on art, Brown is also prepping the release of his fourth album ‘F.A.M.E. (Forgiving All My Enemies).’ He recently released the video for the album’s pop single, ‘Yeah 3x.’
