Marcela Ruiz, Tepetonga or Tepe was born in Mexico, where she worked for more than a decade in art direction in advertising until she changed her headquarters to Barcelona. There she undertook her postgraduate studies in Illustration at Elisava and spent 3 years at Escola Joso specializing in Illustration for children. Tepe often alludes to her origins: skulls and Huichol aesthetics frequently find place in her absolutely charismatic illustrations. A master of composition, colour and line, Tepe sensitively carves shapes from vectors to create dynamic and alluring illustration. Besides arts, she is passionate about printing, art toys, photography, design, nature and certainly Exquisite Corpse!
Are there any bunnies over the moon? Is there any space left for me to go there? If I go there, will the bunnies come to the Earth and sleep in my bed? I forgot my glasses in the spaceship. But I remember your endless kindness.
