demonstrates itself through a variety of mediums, including painting, sculpture and pottery, to name a few. The diversity of the country and its people, as well as the colorfulness of everyday life in Bolivia makes for great pieces of artwork, some of which have not received the attention they deserve. One of the main reasons for this could be the lack of Bolivian museums
in the past. Recently, however the country has seen many new art galleries and museums open up, giving Bolivian artists
more opportunity to showcase their work. The city of Santa Cruz is particularly well known for its display of Bolivian art culture
, including painting, architecture, and artisanal products.
Bolivia is home to a unique style of art and architecture known as Mestizo Baroque, created when the traditional religious art brought by the Spaniards was combined with the styles of the indigenous Bolivian people. The colonial period was dominated by artists such as Melchor Pérez de Holguín, whereas 20th-century Bolivian artists include Guzman de Rojas, Arturo Borda, Maria Luisa Pacheco, and Marina Núñez del Prado.
