You already know that when it comes to music, Troye Sivan is a true ARTIST. But did you know he’s a quite compelling painter as well? And it turns out, it’s just a natural talent because before his latest expression session, he confessed he’d “never painted anything in [his] entire life up until right now.”

How did we find all this out? Well you see, the 23-year-old singer was asked by Pandora to paint a variety of scenes that represent his new album Bloom. He created several colorful, abstract designs to depict the standout song “Animal,” and painted a vibrant work called “Blue Skies” as well.

You can check out Troye’s painting and explanation of his album nearly track-by-track in the video below.

This art wasn’t just for fun, either: after he was done with these one-of-a-kind masterpieces, Troye donated all of these artworks to the LGBTQ charity, Ally Coalition. The organization, started by the band FUN. (Jack Antonoff, Nate Reuss, and Andrew Dost), works with members of the music, fashion and entertainment worlds to raise critical funds used to support the community.

You can bid on three of Troye Sivan’s pieces on eBay now through November 17.
