It is apparent when looking at artist Tripper Dungan's work that he has been inspired by cartoons. After attending school in Las Vegas, he moved up to Oregon & began performing shadow puppet shows at lounges, house parties, fairs, and piano schools around town. In 2002, he relocated to Portland and built shows with Junk Town, a loose art collective dedicated to making art out of discarded materials. Tripper now paints 3-D pictures and creates electronic music for his cartoons and shadow puppets. If you are in the Portland area, be sure to stop by Moxie this month to see Tripper's work on display. The opening is tonight, August 7th, from 5-8pm.
