MEET SERGIO ZEPEDA
Maybe you've seen the Kobe Bryant mural at the house on the Northeast Corner of Ripple and Rosanna Streets in Frogtown. We saw it while it was being painted and it was also brought to our attention by a few locals, so we thought we'd track down the artist and find out more about the wonderful homage to the late Laker great Kobe Bryant. It was pretty easy to find out who created the mural, as it was signed with the artist's Instagram handle - @Surgeartworx. We'd like to introduce Frogtown native and artist Sergio Zepeda.
