The teen pop singer seems to want the whole world to know that he’s not only a talented musician, but also an expert graffiti artist, The Hollywood Life writes.

The 19-year-old got into some troubles in the past when he was charged by Brazilian police with “defacing a building or urban monument” in Rio — but that didn’t stop the artist from graffitting an outdoor wall of his hotel in Brisbane, Australia, on the night of Nov. 26.

Justin spray-painted a wall of the hotel he stopped after his concert in Brisbane with colorful monsters and cartoons, similar to the doodles he did in South America.

However, the “Boyfriend” singer was immediately ordered to clean up his masterpiece by the local mayor, who seemed to be furious with the teen’s actions.

He said the Canadian star had been disrespectful and “really, really silly”, and even sent a graffiti removal kit to the QT Hotel at Surfers Paradise so Bieber could repair the damage.

“We’ve all been young once. But by the sounds of it, he’s gone and done something really, really silly. But he’s got an opportunity to make good… I urge him to treat this city the way Gold Coast fans treat him.”

“If a normal person did that they’d be serving 80 to 100 hours of community service,” Tate told the local news agency. “Just come and clean it up and we’ll be happy with you.”

Pictures of the painting the singer left on the hotel’s wall were uploaded online, including social networks and picture services such as Instagram, with reports saying “Bieber and his entourage left the cans of spray paint behind for staff to clean up.”

Most Instagram users who saw the images of the Bieber’s graffiti reacted quite agressive, with one saying: “Celebrities should not be above the law. He needs to grow up.”

But the hotel defended their celebrity guest on its Facebook page Thursday, calling him “a lovely young guy” and indicated he asked permission to deface the wall.

“He’s Justin Bieber. I can’t imagine why people think that being a superstar means you stop asking permission.”

Bieber was scheduled to leave the hotel for Sydney, where he performs Friday and Saturday, but the mayor insisted that he should return.

“I know he’s got beautiful eyes. I’ve got some goggles for him, and some gloves because I know he doesn’t want to get his hands dirty,” he said. “Do your business in Sydney and come on back and I’ll give you a chance to clean it up.”

By the way, this is the second recent ruckus involving the popular teen idol and graffiti, with police involved.

In his previous graffiti works the Canadian scrawled “Respect privacy” and “I am off” and made several drawings on a hotel wall of a Brazilian hotel. Police even launched a probe into whether he had permission from City Hall to put graffiti on the building.
