TRISTAN EATON PAINTS “BIG CITY DREAMS” HIS NEWEST MURAL IN NEW YORK CITY
This past Wednesday the YDD team was able to catch a glimpse of the new Tristan Eaton Mural in New York City on Broome Street Between Centre Street & Mulberry Street.
Eaton’s new Mural was organized by The Lisa Project, the Los Angeles-based street artist brought to life “Big City Dreams” which is featuring some of his signature and unique patchwork imagery. A charity public art program founded in historic Little Italy bringing events & diverse artists to Lower Manhattan, creating NYC’s only mural district. For More Information on The Lisa Project please feel free to visit there site at The Lisa Project.
The artist who was born in Los Angeles in 1978, began pursuing street art as a teenager, painting everything from walls to billboards in the urban landscape wherever he lived, including London, Detroit and Brooklyn. After growing up on comic books, graffiti and skateboard culture, Tristan designed his first toy for Fisher Price at 18 years old and began working as an artist full-time. He has since become a driving force in the world of ‘Art Toys’, designing the Dunny and Munny figures for Kidrobot.
Shortly after studying at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, Tristan founded Thunderdog Studios, of which he was the President and Creative Director for 10 years. Thunderdog Studios regularly designs and consults for clients such as Nike, Disney and work with the NBA on projects that span the globe across all mediums.
Tristan’s work can be seen in galleries around the world and in the permanent collection of the New York Museum of Modern Art (MOMA).
