Tristan Eaton was born in 1978 in Hollywood, managed to live in London and Detroit, until at the age of 20 years, finally donated in New York. He became a street artist while still being a “difficult” teenager: Eaton painted walls, billboards, and garbage cans, several times for “vandalism” he was even detained by police. Now the artist continues to create murals on the walls of various cities in the United States. He says his goal is to bring art to those who do not have access to it. Eaton considers it unfair that the poor people are forced to content themselves with only the kind of gray walls and billboards.
The famous collection toys Dunny, based on the designs of Tristan Eaton based on the works of Jean-Michel Basquiat and Andy Warhol.
Now the works of Tristan Eaton can be seen not only on the walls of different cities around the world but also in museums – in particular, in the Cooper Hewitt Museum and MOMA. In 2004 he founded his own creative agency Thunderdog Studios, which is engaged in the creation of designer toys, illustrations, graphic design, and animation.
