Brown, who posted an emotional tribute after the death of the NBA legend, began work on the mural several days ago…and has shared the progress with his fans. He posted a new version of the updated mural.
The wall-sized painting features several images including Kobe’s face, a mamba, and a few pictures of Kobe dribbling and dunking a basketball.
Today, Brown shared a photo of the expanded version of his wall art, and it now includes several images of Kobe playing basketball and a huge purple mamba coming out of the background.
The original version of the art featured a picture of Kobe’s face made with yellow and purple colors.
“ONE DAY AT A TIME,” he captioned the new picture.
Chris posted several images of the mural as it was being created, with the message, “WORK IN PROGRESS!!! WE LOVE YOU, KING.”
The singer is well known for his graffiti art and uses parts of his home to express himself visually. It appears the tribute to Kobe is located at the singer’s home.
Chris Brown was a regular at Los Angeles Lakers home games and shared a photo on Instagram of himself and Kobe shaking hands.
Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter, Gigi, were killed when their private helicopter crashed into a hillside near Calabasas, CA.
Seven other passengers were on board the aircraft including Gianna’s teammate Alyssa Altobelli, her father, Orange Coast College baseball coach John Altobelli and her mother, Keri. Another teammate, Payton Chester, her mother Sarah Chester were also on board, along with their basketball coach Christina Mauser.
As we reported, the NTSB has not released the official cause of the tragic accident, but have asked the public for pictures of the weather at the time of the crash.
Several 911 calls from the day of the incident were released Monday, and seem to confirm the thick fog and cloud cover at the time.
