He is perhaps best known for his large-scale public murals, located around the world from New York to Paris to Shanghai, which he implements with his hand and respect for graffiti culture while honoring traditional painting and fresco with its contemplative and dynamic subject matter and compositions. The reason for the American street artist Tristan Eaton, whose work is exhibited in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the Cooper Hewitt Museum, and the Long Beach Museum of Art, in the USA. His particular style blurs the lines between commercialism and fine art.
After graduating from the School of Visual Arts in New York, Eaton built on his experience designing toys at the age of 18 for Fisher Price and co-founded the legendary Kid Robot. There, he created two of his most iconic designs, Dunny and Munny, establishing himself as one of the founders of the toy designer movement. Shortly after Kid Robot, Eaton founded Thunderdog Studios, where he created original artwork and design for major clients such as Nike, Universal, and luxury watch brand Hublot among many others.
