Ola Volo: Mural Artist

Producer/Director: Amy Huynh

Ola Volo is an artist, muralist and illustrator, based in both Vancouver and Montreal, and she’s living her dream. Choosing to be an artist was the best decision Ola Volo ever made, but it was also her hardest.

Ola gave herself no plan B. She left her job, gave up her apartment and bought a one-way ticket to New York City to pursue her dream of becoming a full-time artist. She had no other option but to make it happen. “Nobody will ever believe in you as much as you believe in yourself. I went into that mentality; I will do everything I can, and if it fails, at least I am in a happier state of mind.”
