Chris Brown has been showing off his graffiti skills since he released the album Graffiti 3 years ago.

Brown visited Miami, representing his foundation by painting a mural in honor of their “Global Best Buddies Day” all proceeds from the event went to charity, which was aimed at helping young people through the arts.
Out of his belief that love and art have the capacity to change the world, Chris created the Symphonic Love Foundation which is an evolution of his history of giving back. This foundation was created to support and generate art programmes for youth while encouraging every day public service.
