Born and raised in Bogota, Colombia many of Camila's influences come from the massive graffiti culture she was raised around in South America. Camila attended the City University of New York's business school and spent many years in the financial industry. She started painting as a way to mute out the New York City noise. While living in Harlem, she was inspired to make pieces such as Sunset in NY and Biggie Smalls, one of her all time favorite rappers.
Her art quickly drew massive amounts of positive feed back from friends and social media. That's when she decided to launch BY:OOHLALA with the mission to bring you pop art, with out the gallery price tag, ultimately making art more accessible to all. By cutting out the gallery as a middleman and scaling her art works as prints, she is able to bring amazing canvas prints from her easel to your home.
Her first feature was at CanvasCultures, and she is now featured at CanvasFreaks (Florida), Art Wall & Co (France), WatchGang giveaways (Los Angeles) as well as breweries in California and galleries in the UK.
Through the creation of BY:OOHLALA, she hopes to sprinkle a piece of her joy around the globe in the form of colorful art that will brighten up your world. We hope you enjoy her art as much as she enjoys making it for you!
