The first mural in Los Angeles was Juan Antonio’s The Fourteen Stations of the Cross, painted in 1806 at the San Fernando Mission.

Environmental marine artist Wyland completed the 122,000 square foot mural "Planet Ocean" on the Long Beach Arena in 1992. For three years, the mural, featuring life-sized images of gray whales and dolphins, was the largest in the world. It was bested in size in 1995 by Colorado’s Levee Project mural at almost 180,000 square feet.

The Great Wall of Los Angeles is a half mile-long mural painted on one of the concrete sides of  the Tujunga Wash portraying the history of California from the perspective of women and people of color.
