The “OLA URBANA” is a mural event that was born from an alliance between the three most important cities in Bolivia in order to strengthen urban art and the cultural diversity of the country through the promotion of national talents and the circulation of international artists. The works included in this event will be carried out by the surrounding neighborhoods in the cities mentioned before with the aim of making art accessible and of enhancing and redefining stigmatized zones.
It is important to emphasize that urban art in Bolivia has been a success thanks to the local visual tradition and the intense work of different groups in the country. And that, at the moment, this event features works created by outstanding artists recognized at the worldwide level. To mention just a few, we want to highlight: INTI, BLU, ERICAILCANE, DECERTOR, BASTARDILLA, whose contributions have enabled the transformation of Bolivia into a reference point for this discipline in South America.

The alliance between the three cities is formed by the groups that organize the main urban art events in Bolivia.
