Christina Angelina is a talented artist hailing from Venice Beach that depicts neglected faces and places in her colorful street portraits that adorn the walls of buildings, skate parks and more. The paintings showcase different parts of Venice Beach that are often forgotten about and utilize the grand sizing of street art to bring attention back to them. The murals are detailed and realistic with darker hues and shading that add an enticing effect that makes the portraits incredibly relatable.

Angelina's murals take the art of portraiture and render it modern with a street art style. The portraits encompass emotion in the faces while Angelina's talent for recreating shading and detail makes the illustrations seem all the more real despite their grand size and obscure use of grayscale tones.
