LOS ANGELES — Just hours after the tragic death of Kobe Bryant was announced, artists took to the streets of Los Angeles to commemorate the former NBA star. From Venice Beach to Studio City to Downtown L.A. murals depicting the icon and his daughter Gianna, who also died in the helicopter crash, covered the walls of buildings and the streets surrounding Staples Center.
