Claudia P. Marulanda Gomez, an artist from Colombia living in Briarwood, recently opened her first exhibition at an art gallery in Manhattan. Her exhibition featured her inspiring work under the ultimate girl-power theme of “Wonder Women.”

The exhibition explores who possesses the qualities that we find to be that of Wonder Women and how relatable are they to us within our day-to-day lives. Marulanda is especially expressing the different traits that make up a Wonder Woman.

“The true beauty is in our personalities, who we are deep down and we need to express it,” Marulanda said. “We are beautiful and powerful; sexy and smart; sweet and ambitious; classy and courageous.

“We are go-getters, passionate and fearless,” she added. "We are limitless and we need to learn to believe in ourselves and accept that we are great."

Although she had always done art pieces in the past, with a focus on drawings, Marulanda decided to pick up painting three years ago. Marulanda collected images and illustrations from various projects to depict various personalities in paintings.

To make a piece, it takes more or less about 30 hours. Marulanda credits art with helping her deal with commitment because overall she claims she’s an impatient person who is learning how to work with the clock some more.

“You learn that with art, it’s about layering and layering and you continue to build a piece,” Marulanda said.

In the future, Marulanda hopes that some of her art will include more typography, a form of art that she has mastered over the past few years. With future projects, she hopes to use typography for positive outlooks for people.

“For myself, if I’m going to have a piece of art, I want something that will make me feel good,”she said.
