The Bolivian Spray Can painting is inspired by Bolivian masks made for the Diablada (Dance of theDevils) that is part of the annual carnival celebration in Oruro in the Bolivian Andes.


These masks incorporate caricatures of Spanish matadors and African slaves brought over to work in Potosi's mines (the latter are depicted with bulging eyes and extended tongues-conditions which the slaves, who suffered terribly from altitude sickness).


It serves as a reminder of Bolivia's complex and diverse history,highlighting the struggles and contributions of different cultures.


The vibrant coloursused act as a reminder of the lively atmosphere of Bolivian celebrations. The bold reds, blues, and yellows create a sense of energy and excitement, reflecting the spirit of the festivities.It is a visual representation of Bolivia's rich history and vibrant traditions, inviting viewers to explore and appreciate the country's cultural heritage.



Scottish artist Angela Thouless’ passion for urban art was sparked during her first trip to Amsterdam in 2012.


In Spuistraat, a neighborhood home to a community of creative types, she took countless pictures of decaying buildings and graffiti, traveling there almost every year to renew her repertoire.


What attracted her was the impromptu and transient nature of street art as well as its multiculturalism, as many artists would come from outside the country to make murals. Her series of spray can tribal mask paintings was inspired by a workshop Thouless led in her home town of Aberdeen, during which she painted on old spray cans.


The suite is an exotic and luxuriant array of tribal masks incorporating elements from African, Asian, and South American traditions. The masks are depicted on spray cans and surrounded by lush patterns of plants and animals.


The series has a distinct metropolitan feel and celebrates diversity through a message of unity: we are one species and one tribe. 


Thouless earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Drawing and Painting and Master’s Degree and Postgraduate Diploma in Art and Design from Robert Gordon University’s Grays School Of Art in Aberdeen, Scotland. She exhibited widely in the UK as well as all over Europe and North America.

She is the owner of Tribe All, which designs t-shirt collections featuring tribal masks from around the world.


As a designer, Thouless participated in the Aberdeen and Milan Fashion Weeks. Her work appeared in publications such as Elle Decor, Red Magazine, and House & Garden.
