From the venue:
By Jeghetto’s Entertainment of Durham, NC
Special Exhibition June 17th- Sept 25th
Puppetry NOW turns the museum’s focus to the art of our time and artists with limited representation in our historical collections.
Tarish Pipkins a.k.a. Jeghetto, was born in the small steel mill town of Clairton, PA located south of Pittsburgh. He is a self-taught artist who has been creating art from a very young age.
In 2008, he started working with Paperhand Puppet Intervention. He has built puppets and performed in several Paperhand productions. In 2018, Jeghetto had the pleasure of work with recording artist Missy Elliott on her music video for WTF (Where They From), controlling the Pharell puppet and assisting with puppet building. He has since worked on numerous music videos, commercials, and performance projects. Jeghetto’s passion is promoting oneness through the magic of puppetry.
