What is TAPIGAMI?

 

TAPIGAMI is a contemporary art form created by Sacramento artist Danny Scheible. First attracted to masking tape because of its versatile, accessible, and malleable nature, Danny used the unlikely material to create large-scale installations and create an accessible and interactive art form.

TAPIGAMI is designed to engage and educate artists of all ages. Would you like to bring TAPIGAMI out to an event or exhibit? Or perhaps, you would like to do-it-yourself with TAPIGAMI’s step-by-step how to books.
