Did You Know?

Artist/inventor/composer Trimpin only uses his last name. Though recognized as a creative genius, Trimpin has never been represented by a gallery, a dealer, or a manager, and doesn't have a cellphone or a website. There are no commercial recordings of his music. And he detests loudspeakers.See more »
