Justin Bieber has commissioned 18 murals to promote his forthcoming album, "Purpose."

The Washington Post first spotted “The Feeling,” song title mural on an “unassuming strip mall along Rhode Island Avenue NE” in Washington, D.C. The colorful artwork is nestled between a Chinese takeout restaurant and a nail salon, the news bureau reported.

Other track-inspired murals are in Boston, Miami, Paris, New York, Oslo, Toronto, Miami and Philadelphia.

Past Vandalism

It is unclear from the reports whether Bieber himself helped paint any of the murals.

In 2013, authorities in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, reportedly fined Bieber for "tagging or otherwise defiling a building or urban monument" after paparazzi captured him spray painting walls of the former Hotel Nacional.

The singer is also under probation for a charge of misdemeanor vandalism after he threw eggs at a former neighbor's home in Calabasas, CA, reports relate.
