Okay, this whole Banksy fracas has officially gotten out of hand, because now even the Biebs is trying his hand at gritty street art.

The 19-year-old pop star revealed his new pastime to his Instagram minions yesterday, posting a photo of his paint-stained hands with the caption “I found a new hobby.” Between singing and dancing and getting into weird fights, don’t you think you have enough hobbies?

Not one to deprive the world of his talents, the Biebs made sure to share some shots of his new art, which he’s been working on during the Latin American leg of his tour. Highlights include this irreverent frog/alien hybrid (maybe?) rocking some gold chains and paying homage to Tupac:

Along with this very meta depiction of the words “Street Art”:

And then some other mostly- indecipherable stuff that includes a dollar sign:

As E! News notes, the singer also used his new artistic medium to offer support to his pal Chris Brown — who recently entered rehab for anger management — by spray-painting “Free Breezy” on a wall in Colombia.

Graffiti laws are a bit more lax in South America, but the Biebs better watch out if he plans to bring his street art stateside, as he could face some serious legal repercussions. Or maybe artistic depictions of Tupac frogs transcend the law.
