Murals Paying Tribute To Kobe Bryant Around L.A. And Where To Find Them

By Secret Los Angeles August 23, 2020

Murals to visit and pay tribute to the NBA Legend on his birthday.

Nothing has been the same since the tragic news broke about the terminal helicopter accident that stole a total of nine lives, including one of the city’s most cherished athletes, Kobe Bryant. Throughout his 20-season career with the Los Angeles Lakers, Bryant managed to win more than just legendary games, championships, MVP awards, and even an Oscar — he also won over the hearts of dedicated Angelenos. Whether you grew up cheering for him or against him, there’s no denying that people across the globe recognized and adored Bryant’s Mamba Mentality and love for the game.

While this tragedy was followed by a pandemic that brought the world to a grinding halt, the beautiful tribute murals have not stopped appearing both locally and internationally. In addition to this outpouring of love, the Orange County Board of Supervisors has designated August 24 as Kobe Bryant Day to pay tribute to the player’s contributions to the county he lived in.

Here are some of the incredible murals honoring the star player around Los Angeles and Orange County area, and where to find them. You can find the rest on this map created by Mike Asner and follow the Instagram page here.
