Los Angeles Lakers/LeBron James Mural by Reuben
A ferocious Los Angeles Lakers fan contacted Book An Artist with a request to fill up an empty wall in his Sydney home. He wanted a spectacular mural painting to represent his admiration for his favourite basketball legend: LeBron James (also known as King James).
Made up of the teams’ basketball colours: purple and gold, Sydney artist Reuben, designed and painted a mural fit for a king. Details included a lion’s head, a Los Angeles skyline, LeBron James’ silhouette and dunking pose, and the Lakers team logo. The mural was painted in under a week and just in time for the Lakers big win. We’re sure LeBron James would be forever grateful to the dedication of his fans. The massive mural is sure to be a fantastic conversation starter and make a welcome addition to future basketball watch sessions. Love the work, Reuben!
