Lives & works in Houston, TX


Zulma Vega is a Colombian visual artist who has made Houston her home since 2012. Her studio work spans painting, sculpture and ceramics. Her multidisciplinary practice seeks to interpret human beings while experimenting with different media.

Her paintings express situations or people that have marked her life, the strongest changes. She gets inspired by family images that remind her of those moments. She seeks to understand our passive or active reaction to life, our changes. She paints what she understands, what she feels. Her ultimate goal: to have a personal transformation that allows her to achieve to be present, "learning that life is not about getting to feel good but getting good at feeling", to be connected to the universe and to leave a positive mark in the world. Painting is her form of expression, but as she grows as an artist, she is constantly searching for different results, experimenting with new techniques and new content. A work that reflects what she is, a person in constant growth and change.
