Welcome to the Rippo Art Gallery!


One of the cool things about Rippopotamus that made the band stand out amongst many of it's peers, was that in addition to a distinctive sound, the band cultivated a unique visual style. And just like their sound, that style was the product of collective effort and input. The style also changed dramatically over the 11 years the band was together. We have gathered a bunch of images that we think capture the various aspects of the Rippo visual style. Most of these images were executed by O.P.A..Rippopotamus' in house graphic designer.Click on any of the thumnail images below for a larger version.

This page is still under construction; lots more images & such to come!
