Huntington artist's mural across from Barclays Center honors Kobe Bryant, others killed in crash

“I broke down crying, I couldn't believe it. I was in shock," said Huntington muralist and longtime Kobe Bryant fan Efren Andaluz. "And then later to find out about his daughter.” Andaluz, 33, also has a daughter too. “After I got through the pain and the stress and thinking about it, I told myself, 'hey, I’m going to find a wall and I’m going to paint a tribute for him, her, and everyone that passed away in that helicopter crash.'” Credit: Newsday / Alejandra Villa Loarca
