Chris Brown is an artist. The "Fine China" singers loves visual arts just as much as he loves recording, however his Hollywood Hills neighbors do not like the way the artist has recently expressed his creativity.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Breezy's neighbors are unhappy with the scary art that he had painted along the curb of his Hollywood Hills home.
"There are lots of babies, lots of children, and they're literally frightened. It's like devils on the wall - big scary eyes and big scary teeth, and just the whole vibe is not what we're used to," Patti Negri, president of the Hollywood Dell Civic Association, told the newspaper.
The paintings features large red, monster like characters with sharp teeth and googly eyes. Due to several complaints the L.A. city code officials cited the "Ready" singer $376 for unpermitted and excessive signage, according to Billboard.
Meanwhile, Brown has been ordered him to remove the goblin paintings within 30 days, but his attorney Mark Geragos said that Brown is standing up for what he believes are his First Amendment rights.
"They are trying to suspend the First Amendment," Geragos said, referring to the constitutional right to free speech.
"I know a $300 fine is probably pocket change. But hopefully and maybe, he'll just see the light and decide to be a good neighbor," Negri told the Times. "We're happy to have him - if he just tones it down."
