Abandoned Water Tank Transformed into Spectacular Graffiti Amphitheater

With graffiti artist Christina Angelina's creative touch, an abandoned water tower in the California desert has become a spectacular amphitheater covered in gorgeous murals of women's faces. The artist collaborated with Ease One and worked night and day to blanket the walls with the dramatic, close-up paintings that emanate a cinematic glow.

Visitors to the Slab City installation must first ascend a staircase to climb over the tower's walls and then descend a 15-foot ladder into the empty tank's depths. By night, the faces are brought to life by dancing shadows and dramatic lighting under the dome of the starry Coachella Valley sky.

The artist, who dedicated the exhibit to appreciating women's intuition, carefully chose the expressions for each of the women she painted. She explains on her website that “each individual face embodies a specific emotion tied to a meaningful moment when Angelina trusted her intuition, an inherent sense often ignored by society.”
