"LA does not feel the same without him" -  Black Light King.

Graffiti artist Black Light King stepped out of his norm to honor Kobe Bryant in one of the many murals popping up all over the world. 

Black Light King is known for elaborate fluorescent art that covers the entire side of a building all done by spray paint can. He says the hip hop community and graffiti art community loves basketball. He wanted his mural "in the hood" and says Kobe was an inspiration for many Latinos. 

The Black Light King mural is near Vernon just outside of downtown Los Angeles at Washington and Staunton(near Long Beach Avenue).
