At age 18, LA-born artist Tristan Eaton designed his first toy for Fisher-Price, and quickly became a driving force in the world of ‘Art Toys.’ Upon graduating from the School of Visual Arts in New York, Eaton revolutionized the art toy works as the founding creative director of the legendary KidRobot. Shortly after, he founded Thunderdog Studios, where he amassed a roster of high profile clients including Nike and Universal. In the years since, Eaton has become one of the most prominent international muralists. He earned the coveted job of rendering the classic Universal Monsters at Universal Studios and an elusive licensing deal with Marvel, kicking off the partnership with a limited run of a Marvel’s The Avengers fine art print series that sold out in just five minutes. His endeavors have also ventured into the metaverse. Eaton’s first ever animated paintings combine spray paint--one of Eaton’s most prolific mediums--and digital art--which has become wildly popular thanks to the NFT Renaissance. Eaton’s work can be seen in the Museum of Modern Art's (MoMA) permanent collection as well as the Cooper Hewitt Museum. Most recently, the Long Beach Museum Art (LBMA) hosted a 25-year career retrospective of his work. www.tristaneaton.com @tristaneaton
