Now cloaked in Pepa’s distinctively eccentric artwork, this vibrant flying machine will be will be painting the skies with color and welcoming passengers and VIP guests for Vueling’s various customized flights. Check out her world at elementeden.com and look for her show with Element at Bread and Butter in Barcelona, Spain, July 3rd.

Since its inception, the Element Eden Advocate Program aspires to inspire by presenting a broader and more realistic definition of what it means to be a girl in the world today. “I accepted the advocacy for Element Eden because I think it’s a project that gives a very good perspective on artistic things,” says Pepa. “It’s a good combination of artistic and commercial working together, and I also really liked the work of the other advocates.”

The rest of the Element Eden Advocate “team” includes craftswoman Beck Hickey, filmmaker and philanthropist Kendra Jones Morris, Australian personality Asha Kuerten, poet and musician Ishle Park, and artists Brooke Reidt, Amber B, and Tiffany Bozic.
