Tripper Dungan was born in Santa Barbara, California. At the early age of 4 he got in trouble for coloring in his brother's He-Man coloring book. He hasn’t stopped making art since. In his early teens Tripper and his family moved regularly, sometimes every week. During this time he started making a comic strip that was heavily inspired by “Calvin and Hobbes” and “the Simpsons”. The comic strip didn’t last but a couple years. After a couple years and 3 times across the country and back, Tripper's family settled in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Tripper attended the Las Vegas Academy of Performing and Visual Arts and International Studies. This is where he received the bulk of his art training. For a sort of informal Senior project he and his Friend John Engle AKA the Prof 8o00% made a makeshift carnival they called “The Carnival of the eye”. It featured a plethora of dioramas, 2d art, a black and white strobe hut gallery, a tea bar, and a 7 foot tall mushroom with a light up interior.
Tripper is currently showing in galleries across the country and slinging art at heavily curated craft shows on the west coast. He even sometimes picks up the odd graphic design job for local independent record labels, websites, people that want a design for a tattoo, HUB brewing, and weekly papers like the Portland Mercury. His art has been featured on the cover of the Portland Mercury a handful of times.
