    During an interview with Jay-Z's Life + Times, Alicia Keys' hubby Swizz Beatz has announced plans on opening an art gallery. Swizz enjoys painting in his spare time and has revealed that the gallery will showcase work that he's collected during his international travels.

    He explained, "I want my gallery to be for young up and coming artists from around the world that people wouldn't easily discover," he said. "I feel like I found the new [Andy] Warhol in Japan, the new [Takashi] Murakami in Hong Kong—not to compare their work so much but as far as [their] thinking outside of the box. I found a couple of sick artists in Africa, in Mexico too."

    Who is your favorite artist?
