Though music is his primary focus, Chris Brown is quietly building a reputation as an artist. In fact, the 23-year old held his first full exhibit of personal paintings alongside Ron English in New York City last month. Chris favors a cartoon-inspired animated graffiti style, which you can see on this custom "Carmine" Air Jordan 6 he shared on Instagram this past week. The artwork features a couple of Chris' colorful characters and tagging along the leather paneling.
Obviously his intention wasn't to create a masterpiece with this shoe, but does Chris have a future in sneaker customization? Or would you rather see him keep his art on canvas?
