The schoolgirl in pigtails and a tartan skirt in “Hit Me Baby One More Time”; the snake-charmer at the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards; the star who publicly rage-shaved her head in 2007, and now: Artist. Britney Spears continues to surprise.

In October, Spears shared this iconic video of her perched on a balcony, wind in her hair, dabbing her brush into a palette and swirling pinks and purples across a canvas. Et voilà, her one-of-a-kind masterpiece was born.
