Chris Brown’s curbside art irks LA neighbors
LOS ANGELES – Grammy-winning musician Chris Brown’s neighbors are unhappy with the creepy art he’s chosen to have painted along the curb of his Hollywood Hills home.
A neighborhood group said the grimacing, sharp-toothed, red-eyed goblins painted along a retaining wall have been scaring local children, and is an eyesore to boot, the Los Angeles Times reported.
“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.
L.A. city code officials responded to complaints about the monster art and cited the “Run It!” singer $376 for unpermitted and excessive signage.
Under city ordinances, it’s illegal to create murals on most private properties.
