About Tristan Eaton
Ambitious from an early age, Tristan Eaton began designing toys for Fisher Price at age 18, long before he graduated from his alma mater, the New York School of Visual Arts–and co-founder of the legendary KidRobot. There he created two of his most iconic designs, the Dunny and the Munny, cementing himself as one of the founders of the designer toy movement carried by contemporary pop artists such as KAWS today. Shortly after KidRobot, Eaton founded Thunderdog Studios, where he created original artwork and design for major clients like Nike, Universal, and luxury watch brand Hublot, among others. His highly sought-after style and work ethic in the field continues to inspire confidence in his clients and the admiration of his peers as he blurs the lines between business and fine art.
Eaton’s is perhaps best known for his large-scale public murals, found worldwide from New York at Paris at Shanghai, which he paints freehand; a technical and personal nod to his own history and respect for graffiti culture, while honoring traditional painting and muralism with his thoughtful and dynamic subjects and compositions. From the freak paintings of the Universal Backlot Tour to its recent mural in historic Deep Ellum, Texas, Tristan Eaton creates dynamic and engaging work on a large scale.
All of these experiences become touchstones in Eaton’s fine art practice where new and old techniques meet unusual and innovative ideas combined with an assortment of both traditional and modern methods and materials, all of which find a house and harmony in his work.
