Justin Bieber has expressed his support for troubled pal Chris Brown in a way that “Breezy” would no doubt appreciate.
The 19-year-old spray painted graffiti along a section of a tunnel wall next to a highway in Bogotá, Columbia, on Wednesday night with designs and messages, one of which read, “Free Breezy.”
Bieber painted a large pink/purple arrow in the visual, while the two-word declaration was daubed in red.
The “Heartbreaker” star, who has now left Bogota after performing there on Tuesday, is currently on the Latin America leg of his Believe world tour.
He was accompanied to the tunnel by a small group of friends, his security team, and a Colombia police patrol escort.
Street art is a legal activity in Colombia on non-government buildings, although its believed Justin obtained permission from domestic authorities to graffiti as he is a visitor.
The group were filmed by some fans and City TV cameras and a video was subsequently posted at El Tiempo.
Bieber’s solidarity for Brown comes one day after the older singer entered rehab after his arrest following a physical altercation with a man at The W hotel in Washington on Sunday morning.
In a statement, a rep for the 24-year-old stated he had entered a rehab facility, adding, “His goal is to gain focus and insight into his past and recent behavior, enabling him to continue the pursuit of his life and his career from a healthier vantage point.”
Bieber grew up listening to Brown, among many other singers, famously posting a YouTube clip of himself singing Chris’ 2007 hit “With You,” before fame came knocking that same year in the shape of his manager, Scooter Braun.
Since then, the two stars have forged a firm friendship, attending each other’s birthdays and other social events. In 2011, the duo collaborated on “Next 2 You,” an R&B tear-jerker that appeared on Brown’s fourth studio album F.A.M.E.
Chris has also spoken out many times this year in support of Bieber during his undeniably stormy year.
In September, Justin posted an Instagram showing himself and Brown standing on top of his skate ramp at his Calabasas, CA., home, which was given the graffiti treatment by the “Fine China” star.
“Breezy spray painted my half pipe. He’s super dope,” wrote Bieber in the caption.
Meanwhile back in Bogota last night, Justin painted other images as well as his homage to Breezy.
In one, the teen tributed his deceased hamster Pac, who died back in March while in the care of a random fan he gave it to. A cartoon depiction of Pac wearing two chains, flipping its middle finger, with the words “Thug Life” emblazoned on the chest area now adorns a Bogotá wall.
The words “R.I.P PAC” sit atop the design.
Other images included a bolded out “Street art” and a fluorescent design of colors and words.
Bieber also painted a pink broken heart with the word “Heart” written underneath. Another graffiti art image of his native Canada’s maple leaf flag was changed into a marijuana plant.
The superstar later posted a gallery of his handiwork on Instagram, titling the first, “I found a new hobby.”
The singer performs at Quito, Ecuador’s Atahualpa Stadium tonight (Oct. 31), before hitting Brazil, Paraguay, Argentina, Chile, and Mexico, where his South America leg ends.
Justin will then begin the final Australasia leg of his 15-month trek, wrapping in Perth on Dec. 8.
