Grammy-winning singer Chris Brown teamed up with contemporary artist, Ron English, to launch Brown's exclusive line of toys called "Dum English" earlier this week at the Toy Art Gallery in Los Angeles. Brown was happy to sign autographs and take pictures with fans as he premiered his newest business venture. Sketches and moldings of the collaborative designing process were also on display for the event. “Hands down right now my guy is Ron English,” said Brown. “Ron has to be the most creative, ‘out there’ artist I see. His work is so precise but at the same time so unorthodox. I think it’s incredible to be able to see him do what he does and be a fan.” It only takes a few dollar bills to get your hands on these little toys -- $140 to be exact -- however, all proceeds will go towards the Symphonic Love Foundation, which aims to provide support and funding for art programs for women and the artistic development of children. “Chris is one of the sweetest, most talented people I’ve ever met,” said English. “Working with Chris is like being a kid in a candy store. The ideas we come with are fun and colorful, young and daring.” Depending on the success of his 1,000 initial pieces, Brown plans to expand the "Dum English" brand with sneakers, clothing and more. ~Graeme Mollison
