About Tapigami

Applying your imagination to masking tape!

At it’s core, Tapigami is the art of applying imagination to rolls of tape. Any kind of tape – but mostly masking tape. As an accessible & interactive art form, Tapigami is designed to socially engage & educate artists of all ages.

The medium of masking tape allows the artist to create a work of art inexpensively anywhere. Armed with a pair of scissors, tape and imagination – a practitioner of Tapigami can rapidly turn a stranger into a friend, create gifts for loved ones, reimagine culture into tape creations, and become a Tapigami ambassador to spread the craft to a new crop of artist.

Tapigami’s motto is TOUCH THE ART! This core principle comes from the belief that art is better shared than just seen. Through the exploration of creativity and imagination, Tapigami is proof that we are all capable of being artists.

Tapigami. It sticks with you.

Danny with a couple fans

Danny Scheible created Tapigami as his primary artform while studying contemporary and fine art at the University of California, Santa Cruz. As a native to Sacramento, Danny returned home to spread his new artform across the globe from his studio, now based in Curtis Park, and has watched as Tapigami has spread allover California, the corners of the United States, and as far away as classrooms in South Africa.
